Kotter: Leading Through Rapid Change

Overview & About Kotter:

Learnit is thrilled to be partnering with Kotter for this special session on Leading Through Times of Crisis & Change. Founded by renowned Harvard professor and best-selling author, Dr. John Kotter, Kotter helps organizations mobilize their people to achieve quantitative and qualitative results even in efficiencies, innovation, growth, culture, digital transformation, and other areas that inherently demand change despite what often seem like impenetrable barriers.

2020 has delivered some of the most extreme conditions of change that we have ever experienced in our lifetimes. At both a personal and professional level – and with even those lines becoming increasingly blurred – organizations have had to respond faster with a narrower margin for error.

The bottom line is that there is more change, occurring at a rapidly increasing velocity, and organizations do not have the luxury of time to experiment with how to respond. Before 2020 we were Leading Change. Now, we need to Lead Rapid Change

And we need to do it with high impact and positive energy.

During the session we will explore some of the essential attributes for organizations during times of Rapid Change:

  • The primary needs of most individuals during times of Rapid Change
  • What this means for organizations and leaders
  • There is one formidable power move that organizations can harness. What is it, and how can leaders take advantage

Who this is for:

Anyone looking for tools to adapt to change and lead during the current time of crisis.
