“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting for the old, but on building the new.”

- Socrates


The business world is changing more rapidly than ever, with mergers, restructuring and layoffs appearing in the news every day. As a leader, you need the skills to manage change without eroding motivation, commitment or productivity in your team. An important aspect of the new leadership model is the capacity to build resiliency – the ability to recover or adjust easily to change – in both yourself and your team members. The good news is that resiliency is a skill that can be developed. This course focuses on the crucial role of the leader in building resiliency, effectively leading change initiatives and minimising the potentially negative effects of change on morale, processes and productivity.

In this course, you will examine how work is changing, explore the competencies and attitudes necessary for thriving in times of change, and identify strategies for creating lifelong employability in your work life. Then you will explore the differences between good leaders and great leaders, complete an assessment to determine your leadership strengths and weaknesses, and find out how to create a personal development plan that will enable you to become an effective leader during times of change. Finally, you will be introduced to practical tools and techniques that will increase your ability to bounce back from the many pressures and adversities encountered in the workplace. By the end of the course, you will be better equipped to lead and inspire your team, improve your resilience, thrive under pressure, protect your career, and master change.
