In today's complex global business environment, it's no longer enough to merely respond to change. Successful leaders must be strategic about driving change, and that requires them to serve as catalysts in helping a dynamic business system evolve toward a new level of excellence. It means mastering a holistic approach to ongoing change, which is key to building an agile business environment and promoting human resiliency.
In this innovative program, you'll engage in project-focused learning using your own challenges as a platform for putting the latest theories and tools into practice. You'll leave equipped and inspired to empower your business to become more agile, the people involved more resilient and the entire enterprise better prepared to succeed in the face of relentless change. We encourage organizations to send teams to this program. Together, members will have the opportunity to create a plan, get feedback from faculty and other leaders with a fresh perspective and become "change champions" on your return to the office.

"This experience widened my perspective as an internal and external change agent. New concepts were introduced with practical, actionable application. Familiar concepts were presented with a new perspective that inspired deeper thought. Equally important, the diverse experiences shared by my fellow participants highlighted the wealth and breadth of knowledge that exists in this type of global learning environment. I can’t speak highly enough about this experience."

"Driving Organizational Change departs from traditional change management models to focus on change leadership with an emphasis on the human aspects of change. The program is a potent mix of concepts/frameworks and opportunities to put those ideas into practice. The diversity of participants (range of sectors, industries, geographies and professions) made for a particularly rich learning experience."

"When I signed up for [this program], I was seeking the latest tools and ideas for facilitating organizational changes within my company, as well as an opportunity to test drive the tools before returning to my workplace. My expectations were exceeded! The [faculty] covered a wide spectrum of implementing change within an organization and provided lots of hands-on learning opportunities. In working closely with fellow participants, we developed such camaraderie that we’ve stayed in touch since completion of the program."
