Leading Change

This training course provides you with the tools needed to build a plan to support the changes impacting your organization.

What Is Leading Change?

Everywhere we look, things are changing. And our places of work are no different. Increasingly, change in the workplace produces anxiety, frustration, and fear for those immediately impacted by change and for those trying to determine the best way forward. Understanding these reactions and bringing an intentional approach and process is critical to navigating change well.

This program will provide a baseline understanding of effective change management starting with an understanding of emotional and psychological responses to change and the impact of organizational culture on change. Special focus will be given to identifying stakeholders and following a specific process for creating and managing, a change plan. Participants will leave with a plan developed for a change initiative they are currently working on as well as a template they can use for future changes, whether large or small.

Leading Change is available in person at our training facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in a virtual training format, or onsite at your company anywhere in the country.

Training Reviews

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Someone once said, “If you don’t manage the change in your organization, the change will manage you.” Many organizations are very particular in planning projects and initiatives but fail to consider the human impact of those changes which some studies indicate results in a nearly 2/3 failure rate. Increasing a focus on the impact of change will increase the likelihood that projects are successful.
