Leadership and Change Management PM08.10

Click here to download this overview as a pdf.

One of the most difficult things for an organization to do is change the way it does business. Implementing change is much more than issuing an edict and expecting everyone to follow your lead. Managers must learn to lead their organization through the change process.  Change is hard for managers and your staff. And yet, organizations must change to survive.

It can also be difficult to define the characteristics of a good leader. Most are skills that are developed over time but how can someone achieve them?

This class recognizes the challenges associated with changing how your organization does things, and guides you through a holistic approach to making change stick. It will also explore the qualities of leadership and provide a better understanding of how to develop these skills.
