Course Description

An organization’s ability to effectively drive change depends on its ability to engage its most valuable resource — its people — in the process. This course provides the skills and resources leaders need to accelerate change implementation and create an agile work environment in which people are more open to change. 

Change happens all around us — at home, in our communities and at work. The only constant of change is that it is unavoidable. Anxiety over the unknown, changes in roles and responsibilities and/or processes can result in unhappy, unproductive and stressed-out employees. Embracing change is easier when we know what the changes are, why they are happening, the benefits they will yield and how to overcome barriers to change.
