Executive Change Leader Online Course

Building a Change-Ready Organization: How to Take Change from a Liability to an Asset  

Does this sound familiar?

You got buy-in for the change, but now people aren't following through and they're making excuses about why the change won't work. You created a strategic plan, but managers tell you they don't have time to implement the changes needed to reach your goals. Your employees are complaining there is too much change, yet you are concerned your organization is not doing enough. After spending thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of dollars on new technology and training, people are complaining and falling back on the old ways of doing things.  

You wonder, why people are so resistant to change?  

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be this way. Our seven-session online course, Executive Change Leader, is designed to give you the knowledge, skills and tools you need to create an organization that is change-ready. Led by Dr. Dawn-Marie Turner, you’ll discover how to prevent resistance to change, increase employee engagement, and increase your organization's capacity for change.
