The CMI Level 7 Leading Through Change Programme aims to provide leaders with the knowledge and practice of key approaches to lead change effectively through crises and challenge.
During times of change, the leader’s personal and professional resilience is stress-tested. Relationships can be lost. Systems and processes of organisations can break down. The leader is often faced with wicked problems and diminishing resources to deal with them. However, change always brings opportunity for those with a creative and entrepreneurial Growth Mindset. Leaders who thrive under challenging circumstances have:
- the resilience, mindset and skills to identify opportunities that new situations bring,
- the ability to effectively communicate new plans.
- the emotional intelligence to re-orientate and motivate their colleagues to achieve new goals, and let go of old ones that are no longer relevant.
Through attendance on this course, we will examine the psychological and practical impact of change and uncertainty. We will introduce research-based models for navigating the organisation through the fog, and which will increase the chances of coming out the other side stronger and with new competitive advantages. This is a highly interactive programme which will focus on the practical application of psychologically based theories for real-world impact.
Learners will feel empowered to return to their organisations with a structured plan to overcome adversity and the confidence to apply and communicate strategies for success.
