Anyone who is interested in or will be participating in an organizational change can benefit from this class. Therefore, this course would be appropriate for executives, senior managers, supervisors, team leaders and any personnel in both profit and non-profit organizations.
Organizations change incrementally every day, and not always in a positive direction. To effect a positive organizational change, leaders must first decide where they want the organization to be, and then what is the best way to get it there.
In this 2-day workshop, leaders, key team members and other organization personnel will learn how to develop and implement their own organizational change plans. The process starts with a review of how organizations work, various leadership and organizational styles and the change process. Once the participants thoroughly understand these basics, we move in to the in depth work on analyzing organizational deficiencies, developing plans to correct those deficiencies and implementing and maintaining appropriate changes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Recognize how organizations veer off course

- Develop optimal interventions for implementing change
- Create and use an effective change management plan
- Monitor the change process and correct as necessary
