Program Summary:

This program looks at organizational change from a people and process perspective. Learn how change impacts people, and what leadership behaviours are needed to manage the upheaval. Explore a comprehensive process for helping people prepare for and adapt to change. Practice skills for supporting your team in times of uncertainty, and for facilitating the transition process.

Online program format:
Each day of the program includes facilitator-led online sessions in real time. Sessions are delivered in the morning and afternoon with ample breaks provided. The sessions are highly interactive, enabling you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, engage in skill-building activities, and receive constructive feedback. You will also have access to self-directed resources (readings, videos, self-assessments etc.) that you can review at any time.

Special features:
This highly interactive workshop includes facilitated discussions and skill-building activities.

Please bring to class a change situation you are currently facing at work. Working on a real-world initiative will strengthen your learning and result in a better uptake of change management skills.
