Change management for Leaders and Professionals

Summary:

Wherever we look, change is constant through app development, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Blockchain and more recently social distancing and homeworking.

This course will provide delegates with a better understanding of the change process and models that will help them deliver change successfully in the future and develop a culture within their organisation that embraces change.

This course considers a variety of change models and approaches that will help you deliver change successfully in the future and develop an organisation that sees change as an opportunity to progress, rather than a threat to be avoided.

Overview:

We are living in what has been termed a VUCA world – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. As managers we therefore need to not only cope with change but embrace it and develop the skills to implement those changes successfully. Looking forward we need to cultivate a culture within our organisation and our staff, that relishes change – seeing it as a way to progress rather than a threat to established ways.

During this on-line course you will get a better understanding of the process of change, the impact of change, why there is resistance to change (and how to overcome it) and how to build a culture that embraces change in the future.

This course is therefore for all managers and leaders. It is particularly relevant for Project Managers for whom embedding changes is the barrier to project success.
