About the course


“The only thing that is constant is Change” ― Heraclitus.

This quotation was true of Ancient Greece and is still true for organisations today. However, reactions to organisational change are largely similar – resistance, inefficiencies and even chaos. Thirty years of research by leadership guru, Dr John Kotter, has shown that 70% of major change efforts fail because organisations often do not take the holistic approach required to see change through. Dr Kotter has created an 8-step process to help organisations avoid failure and become adept at change.
