Leadership, Learning and Change: Improvising Out of Our Comfort Zone!

ID: 7163WEB

There has never been a time in our lives where we have had to adapt to change as quickly or suddenly as we have had to do now. Even though we all know that change is inevitable and that we must be adaptive to be successful leaders, it is just as inevitable that we will encounter resistance to change within our organization and within ourselves. This workshop covers a variety of cutting-edge theories that will allow participants to discover the sources of their own internal resistance and how it is communicated to those they lead. Participants will also learn how to become aware of informal organizational relationships that emerge to resist change efforts. Using experiential exercises and case scenarios, participants will learn how personal awareness and transformation of the leader can create a dynamic shift in the organization.
