Leadership Workshop Series 1
This program is based on the USA-based ATD (Association for Talent Development) Workshop Series – Change Management Training by Elaine Biech. The program is available in two-day, one-day, half -day and lunch session.
Why is Change Management Training Important?
Everything. Even managing change has changed! Today’s organizations operate in a volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous (VUCA) world (Johansen 2012). Our organizations face more complex continuous change than ever before. Being adaptable to quickly adjust to continuous change as well as being expert at leading through complex change are more important than ever. Change is a way of life, and proficient navigation in its turbulent waters is a strategic imperative. Simply put, managing change is a required skill for all leaders, managers, and employees.
You’ve heard the statistics. Even though change management has been a recognized discipline for more than half a century, studies continue to report the high failure rates for organizational change projects. Harvard Business Review reports that “most studies stillshow a 60-70 percent failure rate” (Ashkenas 2013). Gallup confirms that this statistic has been constant since the 1970s (Leonard and Coltea 2013). What’s going on?
The workshops in Change Management Training provide an essential component in preparing organizations and their leaders to thrive in a VUCA world. The innovative, engaging two- day, full-day, and half-day programs give you all the tools and resources you need to develop change-savvy managers who can ensure success for their organizations, satisfaction for their direct reports, and job fulfilment for themselves.
