Research by McKinsey tells us that most organizational change efforts fail and those that succeed take longer and cost more than anticipated. This course will approach the subject of change from a contingency perspective, which holds that there is no best way to lead it due to the complexity and dynamism of the factors at play. To address this, we will consider the concept of adaptive leadership and discuss how forward-looking organizations are able to create new ecosystems of leaders that successfully drive transformational change.

Course topics:

  • Planned and emergent change
  • Readiness assessment
  • System mobilization
  • Influence and persuasion
  • Resistance management
  • Adaptive leadership
