The Leader's Summit™ program is an 8 Module Change Leadership (most modules are half-day) learning experience that organizations move through in preparation for a significant change initiative.

If you or your organization is initiating an organizational change, you’re going to need all the help you can get! The ability to effectively lead organizational change has become the single most sought-after leadership skill in organizations today.

Leaders are experiencing the constant need to lead groups of people through relentless, overlapping change initiatives, all the while maintaining their own sanity and integrity.

Discover how you can:

  • Focus people on results, not on emotional reactions during the toughest part of any organizational change.
  • Develop your own ability to communicate in a way that engenders trust and fosters action.
  • Leverage your personal Change Style to get the most from yourself and your staff.
  • Stop managing resistance and start engaging people’s hearts and minds to achieve the extraordinary!
