Who should attend

Anyone working in a leadership or management capacity has to anticipate, facilitate, and sustain change. Students may be working in either a formal or informal leadership role, they may be leading a work group through ongoing, everyday change to achieve organizational results, or they may be serving in a facilitative role in support of organizational change.

About the course

All leadership is change leadership. Good leadership isn’t about stagnation; it’s about moving ahead. In this course, Professor Samuel Bacharach, Ph.D. of Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management explores the fundamental, practical skills that effective leaders have mastered.

Effective change leaders do three things; they anticipate where things are moving, they facilitate the implementation of change, and they sustain momentum by taking charge and moving things ahead. Great change leaders know how to be both proactive and reactive, as Professor Bacharach explains. Students in this course will examine their own leadership styles and practice skills that will help them translate ideas into organizational results, find ways to overcome organizational inertia, and examine strategies for overcoming individual resistance to change.
