Leadership & Culture Change

This course prepares you for the exam leading to the Change Management Foundation Certification.

The course

Winston Churchill once said, “There is nothing wrong in change, if it is in the right direction.” Whether people perceive change is heading in the right direction or not, most fear change outright. How many times have you tried to introduce a new way of doing a routine business activity and been asked “Why can’t we just do it like we always do?” Unfortunately, resistance to change is alive and well. Yet, history has shown that in order for organisations to survive in today’s competitive landscape, only those who effectively prepare for their change initiatives and gain employee commitment to embrace change will thrive.

With the introduction of the Organisational Change Management Foundation course, Pink Elephant is helping prepare leaders for implementing change initiatives. The 3-day course immerses the participant in the concepts, terms, principles, models, approaches and roles relating to the change management practice in four major areas:
1. Change & The Individual.
2. Change & The Organisation.
3. Communication & Stakeholder Engagement.
4. Change Management in Practice.
