Change Management for Leaders
King County is making some of their employee development opportunities available to community partners and the business community. The hope is that these opportunities might enrich learning through cross-sector dialog and networking with topics that bridge sectors easily.
The upcoming “Change Management for Leaders” workshop addresses critical issues related to leading change. The workshop will be held at the Washington State Convention Center on October 1, 2013. The cost to the business community is $99 per person for this one-day workshop, with 50 business slots available.
Theoretical models and frameworks of transformational and continuous change are described, as well as practical applications.
The return on investment (ROI) of effective change management is reviewed including:
- how to generate positive morale, how to ensure higher productivity levels
- how to decrease the likelihood of sabotage.
Self-assessment of individual change styles and leadership change skills will allow participants to evaluate their own styles within the context of the organization, and allows participants to develop personal strategies of coping with and leading change.
Practical applications to real change opportunities will be explored.
