When organizations introduce change, they challenge people to act and think in novel ways. To be successful, the people involved in change — from those leading it to those asked to adopt it — need support to build new skills and perspectives demanded by the change.

In this training  we will delve into the people part of change. Drawing from practical experience and the latest research in the field of change, we’ll explore perspectives on change resistance, the core competencies of effective change leadership, and how to proactively integrate “people supports” into your change approach.

After this half-day course, you will understand:

  • How change impacts people and what informs their decisions to adopt organizational change
  • Critical change leadership competencies and how they differ for executives and middle managers
  • How to effectively use supports — such as communication, participation, training and coaching — to develop change capacity at all levels

Professionals at all levels can benefit from this course. Those who may play a role in leading or initiating a change (executive directors, department heads, team leads) or executing a change (HR professionals, communications staff, project managers, program staff) may find this course particularly useful.

Safety and Health Protocols for In-Person Classes

The safety and health of all visitors, students, trainers and staff is our top priority.

The Nonprofit Leadership Center is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of guests and participants for all in-person training sessions:

  • We are following all federal health and safety guidelines, as well as guidance from state and local governments. Depending on the community spread of COVID-19, this may include protocols such as wearing face coverings and social distancing. Registrants will receive an email from NLC one week prior to each in-person training session that outlines specific protocols to expect on the event day.
  • We are using enhanced protocols and practices to keep our Training Room healthy and safe.
  • Training Room capacity is limited to ensure proper distancing.
  • Any person who is feeling unwell or suspects they have been exposed to contagious illness is asked to refrain from attending in-person training events. If you are not feeling well on the day of your training or are aware of exposure (within the previous 10 days) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you cancel or reschedule your visit with us, whether or not you appear to be experiencing symptoms of illness. If you need to cancel for this reason, please notify us, and we will be happy to provide program credit equivalent to the registration fees already paid.

Please note: In-person training events are subject to be changed to virtual (via Zoom), rescheduled or canceled depending on current CDC guidelines and/or state and local government recommendations as the date of the training approaches. If such a change is required, registrants will be notified in advance.
