Change management is difficulty - where do you begin? This would be an excellent course for new managers or anyone leading a change initiative for the first time.
What do you know about organizational change? How does your current understanding influence the decisions you need to make when managing change?
Does your organization work well together? Or are there conflicts with some people working at cross purposes? Are you keeping up with competition? Or falling behind? Are your operations smooth or bumpy? What do you know about leading the needed change?
In the world today, the only constant is change itself. Business of all sizes need to change to meet competitive threats and take advantage of evolving opportunities. So too, individuals need to adapt to survive (ideally thrive) in organizational change situations – or to break habits holding them back.
This course is an introduction to organizational and personal change, preparing a foundation to go deeper into how individuals and organizations change. As an introduction it covers the essentials for successful change with a project that helps you clarify your beliefs about change and your role in influencing change in yourself and others.
Instructional resources include five videos (48 min.), two supporting pdf documents, and a worksheet that walks you through developing a personal Philosophy of Change (understanding what you believe so you will be better prepared to thoughtfully consider the many questions that are addressed when leading a change initiative).
