CHANGE LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE
Leading Organizational Change
The best organizations are fast to react to changes in their environments. They adapt and evolve quickly, seamlessly. They shape their environments and revolutionize how they do business through continuous cycles of learning, visioning, experimenting and adapting. They're adaptively intelligent. Whether you're dealing with changes due to mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, new leadership, technology implementations, organizational restructuring, or regulatory compliance, the backbone process for successfully changing is the same. Our CHANGE LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE (CLE) builds your capabilities to proactively drive change and transformation and engage your organization in embodying and executing the hard and soft pieces of change, including:

1) How to Lead Effective Change - moving your team and organization forward
2) How to Create the Case for Change - answering 'why we need to change?'
3) How to Communicate during Change - getting the right information to the right people at the right time
4) How to Create a Sense of Urgency - building the burning platform for change
5) How to Launch Change with Short-Term Wins - starting the change process with success
6) How to Lock-In Change - making change stick for the long-term
