Implementing Successful Organizational Change Initiatives
Presented by: John Goldberg, MBA, Lecturer UC Davis Graduate School of Management

To schedule an Open Enrollment Executive Education program, please contact Natalie Hull-Frazier.

Successfully engaging employees in change initiatives is an essential, and often overlooked, step necessary for organizational leadership. In this program, you’ll learn how to move people out of the fear-of-change downward spiral and into more participatory and productive roles.

About Navigating Organizational Change Initiatives

Change is a scary, yet ever present, factor in business today.

Often, we ignore change and the impact that change has on our employees and colleagues, hoping that things will work themselves out.

When organizations retreat into this head-in-the-sand stance, communication, productivity and ultimately trust are destroyed.

In this workshop, you’ll learn the tools and techniques needed to successfully navigate through the murky and often turbulent waters of change. You’ll build the skills needed to move from ignoring change to engaging change for the future success of your organization.
