Leading Change has become a critically important skill for everyone from supervisors to executives in all organizations in today's fast paced world. Unfortunately, research continues to show 2 out of 3 changes fail in one way or another resulting in a massive cost in time, money and lost opportunities.
Leading change successfully is a skill set that can be readily learned by everyone in a supervisory role. Leading Change provides a practical, thoughtful approach to ensuring your organization can initiate and sustain change. This program integrates the four essential competencies of effective strategic leadership, aligning and implementing successful change, leading people through transition and ensuring communication engages everyone.
