Change Professionals Grow Joy
Change Professionals are uniquely positioned to grow joy in the workplace. That's because they know that how change is introduced has a lasting impact on the culture and has everything to do with whether the business goal is reached. They apply a structured approach to change, showing leaders and their people how to make sense of what's happening and how to reach the goal in a way that's right for the company's culture.
Our Change & Joy method is designed to achieve the business goals of change while contributing positively to the culture of the company -- including both emergent change and traditional change practices.
The Change & Joy method is informed by decades of study and practical application of change models, strategies and techniques. It's also based on data analytics, team dynamics, risk management, business coaching, strategic planning, conflict management, emotional intelligence and positive psychology.
Join us to learn how to bring more joy to the workplace!
You'll walk away with...
- The ability to design a practical change strategy and measurement approach scaled to the right risk level.
- The knowledge to partner effectively with business leaders to execute the strategy.
- A Change Professionals Toolkit that works for all project methodologies and business practices.
- Plus, you’ll have the education required to apply for the Certified Change Management Professional (CCMP) designation.
"A great experience! Loved the simulation approach. Fascinating, new perspective on Change Management. Highly recommend for someone looking for the psychology behind change and how to apply it practically."
"I already knew a lot about Change Management after 15 years as practitioner but this gave me a fresh way to think about it. I learned a lot! I could have sat through a standard course to get my education requirement for the CMMP. I'm glad didn't."
"I'm new to Change Management and after taking this course I want to take it to the next level of joy. I hope you come out with an advanced course!"
"The toolset is excellent. I've already started using the collaboration tools with my project team and they really like them! It's hard to get them to pay attention to Change Management and respect how important it is but these tools seem to work. Thank you!!"
