Directing organizations through cultural change training program

Directing an organization through cultural change is one of the most challenging tasks any leader can undertake. It requires additional skills than those used to implement organization-wide technical-changes or manage large projects.  Cultural change requires mastery in subjects such as: changing people’s behavior, overcoming resistance, motivating people, managing momentum, developing leadership effectiveness, and developing strategies and change systems that correctly balance the technical and human aspects of change.


To provide the understanding and tools top leaders need to develop a robust cultural-change strategy and successfully direct their organizations through cultural-change.
