Change is an inevitable part of organizational life
And if you have any leadership role, you'll soon be called upon to help lead it.
But, we often fear change. This leads to resistance. So, managing and leading change is a challenging role. It will take you outside of your comfort zone and beyond your existing management and supervision tool-set.
But change is predictable You can anticipate how people will respond, and what you need to do to engage them positively. You can plan, prepare, and handle the resistance that will certainly come.
To do that, you need practical tools and models
And this course will give you them.
More than that, you'll learn:
how the need for change arises,
how to communicate it, and
the way to lead people through it.
Here are the main topics you'll cover:
The Cycle of Change
Barriers to Change
The first reason why people resist change
Tools for change leaders
How people respond to change: the change curve
