Guiding Organizational Change (Simulation Course)

Do you want to make organization changes faster with less resistance and greater employee commitment, less organization disruptions, and achieve more with every organizational change?  Facing an economic necessity to make major organization changes quickly, it is easy to forget that an organization does not change until its people change. People change first and when we understand how they do, the rest falls into place.
This powerful three-day workplace simulation, based on an actual change project, gives participants real experience with multiple, and sometimes simultaneous, organizational and personal changes, which they learn to navigate successfully. Participants’ new skills can be immediately applied to their workplace and to their projects to accomplish more effective and timely organizational changes.
