The Change Leadership Hybrid Series focuses on how leaders can improve critical skills while remaining strong and keeping teams effective and efficient during and after times of critical change in the workplace. During times of change, a leader’s job is to ensure that their team stays informed, motivated and keeps a good attitude about adapting to new conditions. A leader must have the ability and emotional intelligence to recognize that all people embrace change in their own unique way.
This series will help a leader navigate these behaviors and emotions. While not all change will be smooth, we can learn how to be seen as a credible and trustworthy leader during conflict and challenge. By demonstrating transparency and authenticity through communication with our colleagues and our teams we will earn trust during these critical periods of change. Keeping engaged employees who want to share their innovative and creative ideas with an organization means creating a culture that accepts new ideas. How can leaders learn about the barriers of creativity and work towards a culture that not only accepts but embraces collaboration?
Learn about all of these topics in-depth and get one-on-one coaching with instructor Allison Cooley when you sign up for one or more of the Change Leadership Hybrid programs.
