The ability to lead others through change is an important skill. Change is constant, and it’s most likely present in every aspect of your life. With today’s rapidly changing business landscape, it has become the norm in all organizations. The frequency and pace at which leaders must ask employees to change course or adapt to new systems and initiatives continues to accelerate.

Change can be antagonistic, undesirable, and perilous – or it can be pleasant, welcomed, and exciting. It is a leader’s job to identify the positive prospects and communicate the opportunity that change imposes upon the organization.

Leading others through change successfully requires thoughtful planning and innovative options. This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar will provide you with a clearer understanding of what happens to people when an organizational change initiative occurs. It will introduce the tools and techniques you can use to more effectively lead change efforts in your organization, ultimately allowing you to feel better prepared to address the myriad of changes that come your way. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
