Leading Action and Change

This course is intended to help you become a more effective leader of action and change, to increase your understanding of the nature of organizational change (through conceptual frameworks, readings, and discussions), to hone your skills in dealing with change (through observation, analysis, and experimentation), and to enhance your sensitivity to the contribution and consequences of the human element as related to action and change. Topics such as designing for change and ongoing innovation, mobilizing change through vision and persuasion, overcoming resistance to change, building support for change through influence, and implementing change from the top and the middle will be explored.
