Course Overview

“How to successfully inspire and motivate change as a leader in your organization.”

When you’re living in turbulent, fast-changing times like today, the only way forward is to innovate. “The way it’s always been done” simply won’t work anymore. However, because so much is changing, if you don’t address your employee needs (as well as the needs of other key players), people can become internally focused on their own personal survival, and resist change.

The harsh reality is that well over 70% of change initiatives, large and small, fail. If you dig deep, the difference between those that succeed and those that fail is the focus on people. The ones that fail focus on the goal alone and try to change people. The ones that succeed engage and lead their people.

This program is focused on providing participants with strategic and tactical information about leading a successful change effort in an organization.  This session has been specifically created to provide participants with tools and frameworks to successfully embrace the challenge of leading and managing change in today’s turbulent times.

Intended For

Managers, Directors, Project Managers, Project team leads, Supervisors and other professionals with strategic and tactical information about leading a successful change effort in an organization.
