Effective March 16, 2020, the educational programs scheduled to be delivered at our New York City facility will be moved to virtual delivery, where possible, or rescheduled. For those programs that do not lend themselves to a distance-education format, we will postpone them until we receive guidance from the University and public health officials that it is safe to hold those programs in-person. Please contact ilrcustomerservice@cornell.edu with any questions. We will provide updates as they become available from the University.

Course

Sustainable organizational change is an art, not a science. Today’s leaders need to be able to artfully inspire their people, and motivate them to change, by meeting them where they are – with a fully realized, articulate vision for the future and concrete action steps to get there. Leaders must be thoughtful and intentional in their change initiatives. Only when they are equipped with the vision, the tools, the training, and the empathy can they capture hearts and minds for good.

Key Outcomes

  • Understand change and the impacts it can have on leaders and their teams
  • Recognize individual leadership strengths and challenges when it comes to leading through change
  • Begin using practical and effective change tools to become a better change leader

Approach and Features

  • Impact of change on business, organizations, teams and leaders
  • Critical role of a change leader
  • Typical responses to change and how to handle them as a leader
