Why are Change Leadership Skills so important?
Does it seem like the pace of change is increasing? You are right! Advances in technology, globalization, shifts in demographics, increased competition, changing regulation.... the list goes on. In a dynamic, complex and rapidly changing business world, organizations need to be vigilant to adapt. And they need effective leaders at all levels with the skills to create positive, sustainable change!
Leaders that are proactive in identifying the need for change, creating a clear vision, and using effective tools and techniques are the key to success. With Change Leadership Skills, you can demonstrate exceptional results! And our courses provide you with simple, practical tools and techniques that can work in any size organization!
Who should take this course?
This course is designed for current and aspiring leaders that want to develop their leadership skills. Those that recognize the importance of being proactive. Those that want to create and maintain exceptional performance in their business unit.
This course is NOT for those looking for quick fix!
Make no mistake, this is not a light course! Change is difficult and complex, and has a high failure rate due to lack of skills in change leadership and management. So I will guide you through the process to develop skills through information (lectures), understanding (exercises) and application (real world case studies and assignments) – leading to strong competency.
How we ensure your success
The curriculum has been carefully designed to generate specific learning outcomes. I use a combination of knowledge (video lessons), and exercises to apply the knowledge. This is where you truly develop the skill. After all - your goal is to be able to apply this in your workplace, right? So you need to get a feel for how to do this.
So for this reason, the course incorporates my own experiences and tough lessons learned as a manager leading change in a constantly changing organization. I will also provide you with some simple and practical tools that you can use when it comes time for you to implement change. And the exercises will help you to analyze and develop new approaches that you can immediately use in your work.
Change Leadership encompasses vision, strategy, communication, developing trust and empowering others.
Change management includes the structure for planning, implementing, managing, monitoring and adapting.
And as good managers need to do both, I have incorporated both aspects in this course!
What Learning Outcomes will I have as a result of this Change Leadership Course?
Completing this course will position you with the knowledge and skills to lead others through change. It will also give you the tools to manage the process in a structured and positive way, from initial planning through to successful completion.
If you are already managing people, this course will build your skills and help you see new ways that you can improve your leadership skills within your work environment.
If you are new to management, this course will position you to be successful when you are required to step up to a challenging change initiative. And if you are aspiring to be a manager, this course will give you the skills that many employers seek.
Specific Learning Objectives
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Describe industry best practices, models and frameworks for organizational change.

Throughout the course, there are quizzes to ensure that you have achieved the learning outcomes from each section. You can go back and review information on any areas that you don't quite understand (or email a question to your instructor!)
