Who should attend
This cohort is designed for anyone involved in implementing change management programs, including but not limited to HR executives, managers, project managers, IT professionals and leaders.
If you are contemplating change on the horizon or standing face to face with change, you know that failure is not an option. But human beings have a natural resistance to change.
Change Management cohort is a 5-week program (2-hour weekly learning sessions) of interactive workshops teaching you the skills necessary to support and manage the effective implementation of change. The skills and programs covered in this cohort will help ensure that your team succeeds, the change sticks, and your organization gets the ROI it is looking for.
Introduction to professional change management
We dive into the fascinating world of change psychology and our natural resistance to adaptive behavior. Leaders and managers will gain a deep understanding of why people don’t always just “get with the program”, and how to avoid making common mistakes that sabotage change initiatives. Week 1 covers:
Preparing for change
Most of the real work in change management happens before the change. In this session you’ll learn how to plan out a change roadmap that leads to success.
How you announce change can lead to or prevent resistance. Here, we learn best practices around announcing different types of change.
Supporting and reinforcing change
In this session, you’ll focus on getting people moving, building momentum, supporting lasting change, and working with resistance. We’ll learn:
Final project presentations & graduation
We will review the key themes of the sessions and students will give a short “executive level” presentation about a project they’ve been planning. We’ll then celebrate!
A reunion session will be held after 3 months.
