Introduction to Change Management – And Why Change Work Is Critical to Business Today
September 15 & 17, 2020
Online
Training

The world around us is constantly changing. Business leaders in all industries need to be able to grasp what change is, why others may resist it, and why it’s crucial to their organizations. This understanding is critical to the success of a leader’s change approaches. Communication is key, and the ability to measure and explain your changes can be as important as getting people to actually change.

In this course, you will develop skills to define and articulate change, measure change results, and identify actions to change your own approaches. You will learn about what makes change "hard" for some and discover ways to enable teams to change.
