Change Management is so much more than training people or communicating what’s new. It requires significant preparation and critical leadership skills to both implement a desired initiative and empower people to embrace the change within their current environment. Understanding the ways in which managing change can reduce barriers to adaptation to change and lead to a more fluid, dynamic organization and is a key leadership competency.
In this brand-new online course, local government leaders will:
- Enhance their understanding and increase their impact when it comes to managing change within local government
- Build change resiliency within their organization
- Help teams more effectively identify, adapt to and thrive within an ever-changing environment
- Apply a framework for effective change management to better identify the stages of change
- Effectively support teams through planned and unplanned change
- Mitigate resistance and empower individuals to embrace a new path forward
Guiding your team through change can be challenging. Using self-paced activities combined with virtual webinars, this online course will provide local government leaders with the strategies they need to identify and plan for the stages of change, recognize and evaluate the impact of change, and apply change strategies that support strategic priorities and put the structures in place to foster lasting change.
