Webinar: IMA Leadership Academy Workshop, "Leading Change"

When:  May 27, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:15 PM (ET)
Associated with  Lincoln Trail Regional Council

IMA Lincoln Trail Regional Council will be presenting IMA®’s Leadership Academy Workshop: Leading Change!

How do you keep up with the startling rate of change in our world, much less lead a team through change? This course will help you develop an approach to doing just that. We delve into Kotter’s 8-step change model and look closely at organizational change management, creating a business plan for change, creating and communicating a vision for change, developing the resources and support needed for change, strategies for leading people through change, and incorporating change into the organizational culture. Change is a critical modern business requirement. Are you ready to lead change? 

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, you should be able to:

  • Define organizational change management. 
  • Create a business plan for change. 
  • Identify steps to create and communicate a vision. 
  • Describe how to develop the resources and support necessary for change to occur. 
  • List strategies for leading people through the process of change. 
  • Outline ways to build upon successful change and incorporate it into the organization’s core culture.
