Leading Change - Getting Started

What is your Change Philosophy? | taught by Dr. Ross Wirth

Course description

What do you know about organizational change management? How does your current understanding influence the decisions you need to make when managing change? This online course can get you started in the right direction.

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.

Course goals:

  • Discover the Essentials of Organizational Change (the 3 things you Have To Do Right)
  • Develop your personal Philosophy of Change (What you believe about change and how that drives success)
