Driving Performance and Change Online


Overview


The only constant in today’s volatile, uncertain, and complex world is change. Leaders have to continually evolve, grow, and adjust to their changing environment, and get their people to do the same. Driving Performance and Change shows you how to maximize your impact as a leader during times of change.

You will learn practical ways to deliver effective feedback and to coach your people in order to help them cultivate self-awareness, close performance gaps, develop new capabilities, challenge their own mindsets, and approach their full potential. You will learn how to practice resilience so you can neutralize barriers, rebound from setbacks, adapt to new conditions, and inspire change. And you will learn how to lead people on a change journey by getting them to successfully implement critical changes in behavior.

We often see our selves and others as fixed, in terms of our personality, character and professional skills. This program will give you a powerful new understanding of how much untapped potential there is for you and your people to change. And you will gain practical techniques to help you and your people adapt and flourish in a constantly changing world.
