Fundamentals of Leadership
LEAD_ART 202-0 Leaders as Change Agents *Core Course

As leaders or project managers you are expected to support organizational changes and get your team bought into those changes. You also create changes within your scope of work to create positive improvements to the products, services, people and revenue of the business, yet 80% of change efforts fail.

 

In this course you will learn how to be that successful influencer and creator of change. You will use proven processes for implementing lasting change that eliminate the risk of your change becoming another “flavor of the month.” You will gain the personal insight and skills to convince key stakeholders of your proposal and enlist others in your vision of change. These skills will also reduce resistance and eliminate the potential for legal action originating from mishandled change initiatives.

 

By the end of the second day you will not only possess a clear understanding of the mechanics of change within organizations but will have developed a vision for change and learned how to be a better influencer as a leader.

 

Learning Objectives: At the end of the two-day session students will have the models, knowledge and insights to:


1)  Design change using proven methods to increase adoption success
2)  Analyze the environment and variables to determine the barriers and strategies for change
3)  Identify system implications to ensure sustainable change
4)  Anticipate reactions to change and respond appropriately
5)  Identify your strengths and challenges as a key influencer in your organization
6)  Tailor influence communication to those in different stages of change and whose communication patterns differ from the student’s own style
