People are often described as resisting change. According to research on leading change, people often recognize the need for change, they just do not want themselves to be changed.
Implementing change is often more challenging than leaders anticipate–because people, even the seemingly most adaptable people, resist being changed by others. Leading Sustainable Change can help leaders work through organizational resistance by creating a shared vision of the future that connects to each individual’s core values and desires.

Leading Sustainable Change helps leaders engage and inspire others to be part of the change process and feel ownership for success. In this hands-on facilitated program, leaders will work on addressing the challenges they face with their own change initiatives. They will analyze the current climate for change in their own group, team or organization and determine the best approach for moving the group forward.
