Certificate of Change Management

Lead to effectively drive positive change.

Starting August 7, 2017

A four-part overview of change management theory and strategies for driving a change process, managing resistance to change, and helping others more effectively support your agenda for change.

Change management is both a process and a strategy for how a leader influences a community, redesigns an organization, or rights the ship to face new, unanticipated challenges. Effective nonprofit leaders and managers must understand the principles of change management in order to succeed in today’s challenging environment. Change management is a process for improving an organization’s outcomes or reacting to a sudden funding loss.

This four-part series provides an overview of change management theory and three different change management strategies often used to successfully drive a change process. It will cover organizational resistance to change and approaches for managing that resistance. Learn about communication techniques and ways to help others be more effective in supporting your change agenda. Learn more about your personal style and how you might better respond. Learn how to respond to situations using a change management process.
