About the course
How to go from stagnation to innovation
Most organizations are now under tremendous pressure to change significantly the way they operate. Thus, the skills required to lead or help bring about organizational change have never been in more demand. However, most organizational change initiatives fail. One reason is that leading an organizational change usually requires navigating perilous psychological waters with those who experience the change. Organizational change initiatives often run aground on the unforeseen or ignored rocks of employee disinterest, exhaustion, demoralization, frustration, outrage, and paranoia. We will investigate how effective change leaders steer their organizations clear of these hazards
