Who should attend

This course is intended for managers who are tasked with leading a change initiative within an organization; they do not necessarily have to be in a formal leadership or management role. This course will be helpful for people leading change at any level of an organization, handling stakeholders who may be internal (such as cross-functional teams and other departments) or external (such as customers). This course prepares students to ready the organization through identifying resistance to change, creating a strategic plan for overcoming that resistance, and getting people on the side of your change initiative. Students will also create a vision statement for the change initiative, which is a key step of any leader.

About the course

This course will provide you with tools and concepts to develop and lead strategic organizational change. The emphasis is on cultivating your ability to assess the need for change, selecting from among viable change initiatives, motivating others to move forward, the process of transformation, and finally sustaining the change over time.

Authored by SHA's Professor Cathy Enz, Ph.D., this course will teach you how to lead strategic change from inception to execution and beyond.
