Change Management

Monday, September 18, 2017


9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Join us as we explore the neuroscience of change management.


Everyone understands that when change occurs we have two choices - adapt or die. Then why is it that when an organization is undertaking a major change, the staff seems bound and determined to choose the latter?

Learning Objectives: 

  • How to lead change effectively through proven coaching and Socratic methods; 
  • Tools to ensure your peers and staff feel safe and empowered in the midst of change
  • How to “manage upward,” create “buy-in” for initiatives, and communicate individual and department concerns.
  • How our brains are wired and why they are resistant to change
  • Steps to achieve compliance, entrepreneurial spirit, and teamwork toward your goals

Who should attend:

  • Executive directors and senior management
  • Managers and staff 
This workshop is included in our Nonprofit Management Certification series and fulfills three hours in the Organizational Management competency area.

Cost:  $60
