Is change occurring in your organization? Are these changes causing stress or conflicts? Do you know how to get everyone on board the change train that’s rapidly heading out of the station? How do you get employees to not only go through the motions, but also actually “buy into the changes that are necessary?”
Any significant change creates “people issues.” New leaders will be asked to step up for leading teams through uncertainty, jobs will be changed, new skills and capabilities must be developed, and employees will be uncertain and resistant. Dealing with these issues on a reactive basis puts speed, morale, and results at risk.
The secret to leading greater levels of change is not to press harder on the pedal already floored, but to shift gears and develop effective change leadership skills throughout the organization.
Due to the increased pressure to respond to change quickly, and the changing dynamics of the workforce, human resource professionals as well as line and project managers must also wear the hat of change agents – leading the way to make change work – to be effective and productive and cost-effective.
If you are a manager or executive, a project or team leader, a human resource professional or director, you need to understand the human elements of change and create effective strategies for engaging people to move forward with the change. You need to develop the four key skills and implement the four key steps for leading change successfully.
The focus of this change leadership training is to increase the effectiveness of change leaders within the organization in order to keep up organizational productivity in uncertain times:
• Identify the forces driving change today within your organization

Leading change in a fast-changing environment is increasingly the situation in which most organizations now work.
