Cultural Change for Executives Training Program

It is said that 80% of cultural-change efforts fail to achieve their objectives. This is surprising considering cultural-change strategies are developed by seasoned executives who are experts in restructuring an organization and implementing very complex projects. Clearly, there is something different about cultural change. Success is mostly determined by an organization’s effectiveness in handling the human side of change, such as overcoming resistance, obtaining buy-in, aligning leaders, engaging employees, and changing people's behaviors. It is critical to know how to transform cultural change objectives into a cultural change strategy, support structure, and systems that can effectively support the organization in implementing the desired changes.
