Leading successful change requires unfaltering commitment, skill and technique. The complexity of change can be so overwhelming that many managers simply don't know where to start. Whether you want to learn how to manage organisational change or are in a position of restructuring or reorganising, this interactive and highly participative learning event will ensure that you get support and commitment from your people right from the start.
Delegates will enhance their skills in order to lead both transformational and incremental change - change that is both physical and which requires the careful management of people too - using simple, easy to apply and highly effective tools.
You will benefit from this course if you are a manager who is either about to introduce change or already managing a change programme. You will also benefit if you are likely to manage change in the future.
