Course description

Influencing Change

Influencing Change

The Influencing Change Program was developed to help idea champions become more skillful and effective at the “positive politics” that are necessary in order to screen, promote, and implement ideas for improved or completely new products, processes, or systems. Individuals, and especially teams and intact work groups, who take part in this in-house program will emerge better able to carry out the change initiatives that contribute to organizational goals.

During the Influencing Change program, you will:

  • Learn to communicate their ideas for change more successfully.

  • Identify stakeholders and develop strategies for gaining support.

  • Locate resources needed to ensure effective implementation.

  • Enhance the value of their ideas to the organization.

  • Learn to deal productively with resistance to change.

  • Develop a results-oriented plan for implementing an important change initiative.

Who should attend?

Influencing Change focuses on issues that are common to anyone who must guide an initiative or new idea through the obstacle course of organizational resistance. As a result, the program is helpful to people from a wide range of professional, functional, and organizational affiliations. Aspiring product or process innovators acquire the knowledge and skills they need to champion new ideas successfully. Work groups that must implement changes become more adept at assessing organizational risk and overcoming resistance. Managers acquire tools to help coach innovative employees or project teams responsible for implementing initiatives.
