Course Overview

The pace of change in organizations has increased manifold in recent times. Improvement in processes, structures, systems are often being attempted with an objective of achieving better efficiency and effectiveness. However, it is known that most change initiatives fail to achieve their desired objectives.

One of the reasons for the failure is lack of skills among managers driving the change. While training their managers, organizations usually consider leadership development and developing skills for managing change as separate challenges. Although most organizations train for leadership development, training for managing change is not given due importance. CEB Corporate Leadership Council in a study conducted in 2016, surveyed more than 300 HR leaders and found that only 5% organizations have talent management processes that are helping employees adapt to change and only 21% organizations are unable to initiate change as soon as the need arises. Therefore, building change management expertise is a key focus of organizations today.

Also, most of these trainings are focused on senior managers than middle managers. We strongly believe that if change programs are to succeed, there has to be able managers at each level with a know-how of leadership and change management concepts, tools and techniques. Hence, leadership development and change management training should ideally go hand-in-hand if organizations want to be more effective. Trained managers in Leadership and Change also have a better chance of career advancement as they are more successful than others in handling managerial tasks and in managing change.

This program will offer insight into concepts and applications of leadership and change management with an emphasis on learning knowledge, skills and values. The program intends to be participative with a lot of reflections/assessments into one’s own style of leadership and change management, thus, providing opportunities to identify specific areas of improvement.
