Leading and Embracing Organizational Change

1st of the month

Virtual Self-Paced



In order for an organization to survive and thrive, change must occur. However, change is a disruptor and frequently viewed as a potential threat, creating an environment of resistance. As a leader, understanding and managing this resistance is key to successfully implementing new initiatives. Leading and Embracing Organizational Change teaches you how to replace ‘fear and opposition’ with ‘confidence and buy-in’ to avoid failure in change adoption.


  • Communicate the need for change and the consequences of not changing at all
  • Identify the connections between change, leadership, and management
  • Use knowledge of the roles people play in successful adoption
  • Employ techniques and coping mechanisms to mitigate stress reactions
  • Tailor implementation to be successful
  • Apply change process models to your own initiatives
