Many leaders are unprepared and ill-equipped to lead change in times of increasing uncertainty. In Change Essentials, you learn the foundations for successfully driving change, built on Dr. Kotter’s 8-Step Process for Leading Change and 4 Key Leadership Principles. You then explore, in depth, one critical aspect of this framework: creating a sense of urgency. You practice how to get and keep people on board and supporting change, learning the definition of true urgency – in contrast to false urgency and complacency – and how to build and maintain it in your own context.
This program is based on John Kotter and Holger Rathgeber’s best-selling book, Our Iceberg is Melting, and Dr. Kotter’s newest thinking in his book, Accelerate: Building Strategic Agility in a Faster Moving World.
