Leading Change - Virtual Training

  • Leading Change

    Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher, famously declared "There is nothing permanent except change."  This quote rings more true now than perhaps at any point in human history.  Everywhere we look, things are changing.  And our places of work are no different.  Increasingly, change in the workplace produces anxiety, frustration, and fear for those immediately impacted by change and for those trying to determine the best way forward.  Understanding these reactions and bringing an intentional approach and process is critical to navigating change well.

    This program will provide a baseline understanding of effective change management starting with an understanding of emotional and psychological responses to change and the impact of organizational culture on change.  Participants will dive into a case study that will challenge assumptions about change in the workplace.  Special focus will be given to identifying stakeholders and following a specific process for creating, and managing, a change plan.  Participants will leave with a plan developed for a change initiative they are currently working on as well as a template they can use for future changes, whether large or small.

    Learning Objectives

    As a result of attending, participants will: 

    • Be able to articulate a business case for managing change intentionally
