Leading Change in Your Organization


Research by the Conference Board, a leading non-profit business membership organization and independent source of economic information, suggests that almost 80 percent of organizational change efforts fail. These failures are not the result of faulty strategy, new processes or procedures, organizational redesign, updated systems or new technology, as you might expect. The major reason attempts at organization change fail is ignoring the interpersonal dynamics of change.

In this one-day course you will be introduced to the fundamentals of change management in an organizational setting. Learn how to address the impact of change—on your team, on your organization and on you.
