Developing the Tools and Skills Necessary to Lead a Transformational Culture Shift Within Your Organization
Meaningful organizational change requires a thoughtful process with engagement from all levels of your organization. Our Designing Change program gives you the tools and skills you need to map out and lead a transformational culture shift with long-term positive effects.
Our facilitators bring real-world experience to the table, giving you hands-on opportunities to learn, design and implement best practices that achieve a measurable impact on business results and your organizational culture.
Designing Change gives participants real-world tools and resources for understanding leadership styles and designing, leading and sustaining change:
a) Change Leadership
Through case studies and review of best practices, you’ll learn the difference between leading and managing change, map culture and paradigm shifts, and assess resistance to change within your organization.
b) Designing Change
You’ll participate in simulations and challenges that will help you better understand how to develop, implement and evaluate your master change plan. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of the roles of change team members and assess how well you communicate change processes.
c) Leadership Sustainability
Successful change projects incorporate tools and processes to ensure sustainability across the organization. After a review of proven strategies and frameworks, you’ll apply this knowledge to further develop your own master change plan. You’ll also learn how to incorporate coaching and dialogue processes into your plan to enhance conversations across your organization.
