Know­ing how to ini­ti­ate, lead, and man­age suc­cess­ful change ini­tia­tives is vital to orga­ni­za­tions and key to being a suc­cess­ful man­ag­er. You must act quick­ly, man­age anx­i­ety and resis­tance, share deci­sion-mak­ing, and com­mu­ni­cate with trans­paren­cy, all while lead­ing others.

Through a set of three three-day work­shops, you will exam­ine the key con­cepts and unique skills required in the role of the change agent, both as a leader and as a participant.

This series is designed for pro­fes­sion­als in entry to mid-lev­el man­age­ment who are change agents with­in their orga­ni­za­tions. Stu­dents may come from a wide range of employ­ment sec­tors, includ­ing pri­vate, gov­ern­men­tal, and edu­ca­tion­al organizations.
