If you are an individual contributor, a project manager, change manager, or an organizational leader, this unique course on managing change is for you! It will enable you to identify and manage the human aspects of implementing change. In addition, it will help you to transition people from the current to the future state to realize desired business objectives.

Why does managing change matter? Large-scale change constantly confronts leaders and managers as they plan and execute strategy in their organizations. What they need is a road map to manage the multi-faceted human aspects of change, helping them to transition critical stakeholders from Point A to B. Alignment between leaders and those impacted by change increases performance, reduces risk/cost and helps the team 'get the job done.'

What will you learn?

  • Create a change management road map to address the people side of change

  • Align key leaders on the vision/business case for change & their role as sponsors

  • Maximize employee engagement & adoption of change to reach business goals

  • Assess the organizational culture to foresee how it may assist or hinder the change

  • Prepare the organization through communication, training and knowledge transfer

Throughout the course, I will provide you with tools & templates for each step. You will come away from this course with a simple change management framework & a robust toolkit you can use on the next change project at your company.

For the last 20 years, I have designed & led change management initiatives in many Fortune 500 organizations across multiple industries. I work closely with senior leaders and their teams to initiate strategic change, nurture innovation & keep their organizations focused and aligned. In addition, I’ve had the opportunity to work with top thought leaders in change management across the United States. I’m excited to share with you some of what I have learned!

So let’s get started!
