Leadership and Innovation 2022 attendees receive complimentary access to two online courses:

Leading People Through Change
Research shows that 70% of change initiatives fail in large organizations. The largest factor contributing to this failure rate is leadership – the inability to plan and lead people through change.

In many change situations, tremendous focus is put on strategy, processes, and systems, while the issue of changing people’s behavior is assumed it will “just happen”. In this interactive course, you will learn why the people’s side of change is crucial.

We will begin by understanding why and how people resist change, and how important it is to become strong and effective change champions. Next, we will focus on critical change management practices – creating our vision of the future state, planning for acceptance in our change audience and stakeholders, mitigating threats, and capitalizing on opportunities. We will use metrics to plan, show progress, and confirm success. Lastly, we will focus on the need to reinforce and sustain change, and to prevent relapse to old ways and methods.

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Realize the nature of change and describe how resistance manifests in people
  • Compare prevalent change models and categorize their similarities
  • Identify and rate the skills, traits, and behaviors of effective change champions
  • Envision the future state and assess stakeholders
  • Plan for change communication, training, and risks
  • Evaluate change effectiveness using feedback and metrics
  • Develop reinforcement practices for benefits and communication

Innovation and Design – Thinking Beyond the Ordinary

Thinking and doing the same has got to change. The world we live in is becoming more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Expanding our innovation and design thinking capabilities is a key to unlock solutions for some of our biggest global and local challenges.

What do you need to learn, do, and become in order to continue in the current and future environment? It is a powerful combination of knowledge, competencies, and mindset.

In an increasingly complicated context, this course provides participants with the knowledge needed to not only learn about innovation and what is needed to make it sustainable in your organization but also to inspire others to innovate and think beyond the obvious.

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Explain the link between innovation and strategy
  • Describe the value of expanding your innovation practice and creating an innovative culture would be
  • Apply a basic set of Design Thinking techniques to your innovation projects
  • Promote innovative practices within your teams and processes in your work environment
