Course description

Leading in Challenging Times™

Implementing new strategies requires change, and change requires people at all levels in the organization to be fully engaged and energized. However, change often results in employees who become frustrated or frozen. The organization then quickly becomes reactive rather than proactive.

Leading in Challenging Times™ focuses on what happens to human energy during times of change. To capture the discretionary energy of the workforce, leaders must understand how motivation and focus can be lost, and what they and their teams can do to regain effectiveness and commitment. This powerful organizational development program will help your leaders understand their role in implementing business strategy, execute strategy during times of change, take charge of the change process, and refocus people’s energy to move positively through change.
