Leading Change in Government Organizations - Yes You Can!

If you have ever tried to lead a change, you know that it takes real insight, skill and some luck. In this workshop, you will learn what gets in the way of change and practice skills that will enable and improve the chances that luck will make a helpful visit!

This one-day workshop helps you:

  • Gain an understanding of context of change in the public sector
  • Consider challenges of leading change
  • Learn about three different models of change and when each is best applied
  • Integrate these concepts to your specific change efforts

You may be starting at the beginning or halfway through the organizational change.  You may have a plan for change already, and simply need to tweak it.  You may be reflecting on changes that have occurred in the past and thinking ahead to potential changes.  Wherever you are in the process, build your knowledge and stretch your skills about developing a strategy for organizational change.

Leading Change in Government Organizations will be held again in January 2020. 

Special Note: The biggest challenge of implementing a strategic plan is how to manage the change required to create your desired future.  If you are interested in developing, updating, or strengthening your strategic initiatives, pair this class with “Strategic Planning for Government Professionals” and receive a 20% discount on registration.
