Change has always been around, but it has just gotten a hell of a lot quicker. How can you lead change in a rapidly changing world? Instead of losing support and trying to deal with resistance, during this training you’ll experience how you can approach change in a positive and cooperative way, so people actually support your initiative and help implement it.

This two-day interactive training consists mainly of interactive workshop exercises, so you’ll actually experience positive change. You will have ample opportunity to practise your change leadership skills. Naturally, relevant theoretical background is also given, as are real examples of successful (and failed) change initiatives. You can also work on your current change initiative(s) using the tips and recommendations provided specifically for your initiative.
