HR as Agent for Planning, Managing and Implementing Change

Change is inevitable. While change cannot be eliminated, it can be anticipated and even celebrated. Come join your fellow Human Resources professional, Management Team Member, Office Manager, Senior Leader or small-business Owner in identifying ways to make change work for your organization. Theory of change will be blended with change as a practical matter for the business-person. This interactive course will require the participant to identify potential change coming to their organization while also reflecting on when change happened in the past…and the organization is still getting over it! Plan for change strategically and you can help lead your organization to even greater success.
