About This Class


Does your organization work well together?  Or are there conflicts and some people work at cross purposes?  Are you keeping up with competition?  Or falling behind?  Are your operations smooth or bumpy?  What do you know about leading the needed change?

In the world today, the only constant is change itself.  Business of all sizes need to change to meet competitive threats and take advantage of evolving opportunities.  So too, individuals need to adapt to survive (ideally thrive) in organizational change situations – or to break habits holding them back.

This course is an introduction to organizational and personal change, preparing a foundation to go deeper into how individuals and organizations change.  As an introduction it covers the essentials for successful change with a project that helps you clarify your beliefs about change and your role in influencing change in yourself and others.
