"Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win." - Max McKeown

Leading a major change initiative, whether cutting costs, managing through a crisis, or making good great, can be the defining point of a career. But according to McKinsey, only 30% of change initiatives succeed, equating to high risk for the individuals and organizations involved. What makes change so difficult? How can you overcome fear, bias, and hesitation to successfully navigate important change opportunities?

In this course you will learn to flip the odds in your favor. Step into the role of a change sponsor to examine best practices, hone decision making, motivate resisters, and foster an organizational culture of change. Through simulations, case studies, and knowledge of neurological reactions to change, you will develop an action plan to drive transformational change within your organization.

Leading Transformational Change included an excellent variety of instructors, facilitation styles, and topics. The leaders engaged the participants in sharing real world examples and I had many opportunities to discuss my company's own issues. I loved the class.
