The Ken Blanchard Companies® Releases New Leading People Through Change® Program
Blanchard's newly revised Leading People Through Change Program creates resilient, change-adaptive organizations—Now Available
Change initiatives often fail because they are top-down approaches that require large numbers of people to change at the same time, but the organization lacks the framework to guide people through it effectively. With the unprecedented amount of recent change that goes well beyond any planned change initiative, building up the change leadership in an organization is more imperative than ever.
"At Blanchard®, we know the most successful companies are agile and embrace change as part of their culture. We know change is difficult and overwhelming if you don't have a track record of success or people start derailing it," states Judd Hoekstra, change expert and coauthor of the program.
The Leading People Through Change program teaches executives how to lead successful change efforts by involving others in the process. It uses a research-based approach to address the predictable stages of concern that people go through when faced with change.
"Collaborative conversations allow concerns to be identified early for people to understand what the change is, why it's needed, and how to do it," says Pat Zigarmi, cofounder of The Ken Blanchard Companies and coauthor of Leading People Through Change. "People don't resist change; they resist feeling controlled. This high-involvement approach decreases the feeling of being controlled and builds momentum for the change."
The refreshed program is suitable for change of all types and sizes. Workshops can be delivered to a team working on a specific change or in an open-enrollment format to build change leadership capability across the organization. The new design can be implemented as a one-day, face-to-face workshop, or virtually in four sessions. Featuring Blanchard's proven, interactive design, participants experience different learning modalities and have access to an online learner portal to deepen their learning after the training.
