Then we move to an overview of how cultures view the tasks of leadership, with ways to soften dissonance and create alignment in the diverse workplace.
Significant technological, political, economic, and competitive shifts often lead to strategic and operational decisions that affect people. All organizational changes are personal, and leaders must be able to communicate change messages openly, directly, and completely. Participants in this Webinar learn about the human transition cycle that accompanies organizational change. Participants learn a process for delivering challenging messages about current organizational changes such as mergers, reorganizations, new business processes, and global sourcing decisions. Participants also learn to identify possible reactions by the recipients of change messages and to respond in ways that encourage the recipients to keep moving forward with change.
