In order to survive and thrive in today's ever-changing business environment, organizations must employ strategies to be adaptive and ready for change.
The primary function of leaders is to focus and then engage the people and systems of the organization in these critical adaptations.
Providing focus on purpose and adaptive priorities requires sound problem solving and strategic thinking.
Ultimately, leaders can only communicate the urgency and need for adaptive change. Single-handedly, they cannot make all the systemic and process changes necessary to create the new performance capabilities required for survival and sustained success.
This workshop focuses on how to lead and engage those who work in those processes and systems to take responsibility for making adaptations and improvements, by developing problem solving capability to decide and execute those changes effectively.
*The fee for the program is $2,250 for the first person attending from each organization.
