Leading Project-Driven Change Management

Manager and staff working together

As a leader, have you ever asked yourself:

  • What do I say to my team members to help them through times of change?
  • What is my role in the change process?
  • What do I need to do to plan for the change implementation?
  • How do I respond to change initiatives when I am not aligned with the change?

You are not alone.

Every organization experiences some form of change to requiring varying degrees of organizational transformation in order to survive a rapidly shifting environment. Many leaders and employees struggle to keep up with the pressures to respond to demands of the changing economy. The process of change can bring stress to even the strongest organizations.
