MasterClass - Focusing on the People Side of Change

Change is Everywhere. Thrive during Current Tumultuous time. Come to this MasterClass and learn how to lead conversations when your clients are going through unprecedented change.

Discover the essence of change and compelling “why” of the change itself. Learn why to manage organizational change is a critical component of leadership and survivability in the grand scheme of things.

Focusing on the People Side of Change

Studies show that change primarily deals with human resources. It’s never as simple as ‘out with the old, in with the new’ – technological change is the least of your concerns.

In fact, over 70% of changes fail because they don’t take human factors into account. Instead, this MasterClass teaches you how to set things in motion by prioritizing the ‘people side of change’. We distill the entire process of change management down into a step-by-step roadmap that addresses key challenges including employee participation, communication, and transparency.

Straight from the Field – Not Your Typical Textbook Course. Our MasterClass cuts straight to the point. Build change leadership competence!

Date: Jan 21
Time: 11 am EST (Canada)
REGISTRATION LINK: https://stepbystepguidetomanagingchange.eventbrite.ca
VIRTUAL: Use laptops/tablets for an excellent user experience
Speakers BIOs: Read using the Eventbrite link, please!
