Change is here to stay; there’s no doubt about it. But in today’s empowered workplace, change leadership has, well, changed. What was once the role of senior management is now the day-to-day responsibility of individuals throughout the organization, from the execs at the tip of the pyramid to the frontline employees at the base. And that’s good news. Why? Because studies show that change efforts are more successful when they’re implemented by the people they impact most. Regardless of authority or position, the ability to champion change has become a key factor in professional and organizational performance. Leading Change at Every Level is the combination self-assessment and training workshop that measures skill level and develops the five behaviors of effective change leaders: Modeling the Change, Communicating About the Change, Involving Others in the Change, Helping Others Break from the Past, and Creating a Supportive Environment for the Change. Packed with step-by-step facilitator guidance, a three-hour program outline, several skill practice activities, action planning worksheets, a real-world case study, reproducible article, and lots of ideas for customizing the learning experience, Leading Change at Every Level is your comprehensive toolkit for building confident change leaders from top to bottom.
The Leading Change at Every Level Assessment is available in both online and printed formats. The inventory takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and we recommend you allow up to an hour for the interpretation of results, debrief, and action planning. Using a current change initiative as a frame of reference, individuals respond to a series of 30 statements, choosing from a five-point scale of “Almost Always True” to “Almost Always Untrue.” Results reveal a personal profile and an Overall Effectiveness Score. Effectiveness in each of the Five Dimensions of Leading Change is also identified. In addition to the inventory, the Leading Change at Every Level Facilitator Set includes tools to lead a powerful three-hour training session, from comprehensive background information and step-by-step instructions to skill-practice activities, action-planning worksheets, a real-world case study, reproducible article, alternative training options, and a professional Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation. Trainer certification is not required to administer or facilitate Leading Change at Every Level.
