Course Description

Working With Stakeholders Through Organizational Change

To stay competitive, organizations must be flexible and adept at implementing change. Considering 75% of organizational change programs fail, today’s change leaders need to understand the organizational culture they are seeking to modify and change before they institute a change process. This requires a comprehensive approach from leaders who can coalesce and bring all stakeholders together. Leaders must ensure issues such as diversity and inclusion are addressed; all stakeholders are part of the solution; communication is effective and consistent; and, there is organizational growth to meet current and future challenges.

This course is a pragmatic approach to understanding how leaders can ensure their organization is addressing the needs of all while working toward future objectives. It is designed for mid-career professionals, aspiring leaders, organizational leaders, or anyone who could benefit from a better understanding of organizational culture, change, and working with diverse groups of people.
