Did you know that 87% of leaders wish they had MORE training before becoming a manager? Lack of leadership and change knowledge often results in feeling defeated, losing faith in the organization, and ultimately giving up on one's leadership abilities. Leading projects and teams do not have to be so hard if you understand how to manage change. During this experience, you will learn a framework to help you navigate the change that comes with being a new leader. This will help you increase your leadership effectiveness, boost your confidence and build a stronger team.

By the end of this experience, participants will be able to:

  • Learn a framework to understand leadership change

  • Apply the framework, in an interactive exercise, to your current role/team

  • Feel more confident as a leader
