Program Description

How can we navigate change in business

In today’s fast-paced business culture, managers and leaders are challenged to efficiently and effectively guide their teams through any number of changes. Adapting to these changes can oftentimes be a challenge for employees, so leaders need to understand how to keep their teams motivated and energized when asking them to move from the old way of doing things and inspiring them to embrace the new. Success comes when a leader is able to clearly communicate and create a focus on the compelling image of success. 

Program format: Live web stream + Discussion Board. Plus, up to an hour of one-on-one consultation for each participant. 

In this interactive, virtual program, participants will work directly with instructor Allison Cooley, CEO and Founder of Effectability, LLC. Beginning on May 13, participants will be sent course materials to get started. You will have time to review materials and get started on your change management plan. 

On May 20, we will host the first one-hour live educational webcast with the instructor. Following the webcast, you will have time to complete a post session review and engage in a discussion board with other participants and the instructor. Then, on May 27 we will meet for a second one-hour live educational webcast. Up to three weeks after the second webcast, participants will work with Allison to review their change management plan. All participants have access to an exclusive one-on-one consultation with Allison. Here you will have the ability to ask questions, work through your change management plan and feel prepared to put your new knowledge into action.

After this class, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and understand what drives change.
  • Understand the behaviors and emotions different team members may exhibit during change and transition.
  • Formulate strategies to lead each team member through the transition process and build a culture of resilience in your team.
  • Establish a firm foundation for change by creating a sense of urgency, defining a clear vision and creating an effective communication plan.
