Duration: 1 hour
Every successful leader knows one thing for certain: The skills and knowledge that brought them to where they are probably won’t take them to where they need to go. Successful people adapt and grow. They thrive because they change. And although change can be hard, there are proven tactics for making a change process more successful.
In this session you will learn:
- A five-step process for creating and launching professional and personal change
- Tactics for creating a realistic and meaningful plan for change
- Strategies for anticipating and overcoming obstacles to change
Target audience: Individuals who want to bring focus, motivation, and action to his or her own (and others’) desire to be a better leader.
