Session Description

Leading change is inherent in any leadership role and while some of us have learned some theory on how to lead change, many of us go about it instinctively, without sound method. While choosing a change leadership approach can be a daunting task, the cost of failed change initiatives often demoralizes teams, leaders and, organizations and is frustrating for everyone. Being deliberate in your change leadership approach can equip you to lead your next change effort more confidently and effectively.

In this webinar participants will:

  • Learn how their personal leadership approach may help or hinder their change efforts
  • Gain an understanding of the power of the team
  • Acquire a downloadable synthesis of prevailing models in an easy-to-follow format
