Change Management for Change Agents

24-25 September 2019

David Turner, Lincoln Center



Business success requires that all employees adapt to frequent changes, new competitors, new technologies, government regulations, new employees, and more. This program is designed for the employees who regularly implement change initiatives who are called “Change Agents.” The model we use helps equip change agents to address six risk factors to successfully implement change initiatives:

  • clear intent
  • strong sponsorship
  • individual resilience
  • synergistic teams
  • commitment to the change intent
  • a supportive organizational culture

With this knowledge, change agents will be able lead the individuals who must change their ideas and behaviors for the change initiative to be implemented successfully. These change agents will also be equipped to guide those that have initiated the change initiatives.

Objectives: When confronting the disruption and stress of frequent changes participants will be able to use change knowledge and adaptability skills to:

• Address risk factors in order to successfully implement change initiatives

• Work more effectively with others who are resisting organizational change

• Reduce the non-productive behaviors that often accompany change related stress

Target audience: Directors, managers and anyone responsible for executing change within their organization.
