Who should attend
This programme is for team leaders and top executives who need to constantly adjust to the changing business environment and implement various change initiatives in their companies and organizations. But this is not as easy as it sounds!
Change requires excellent leadership and still faces resistance on many levels for logical and sometimes illogical reasons. Therefore, just focussing attention on devising the best possible vision and strategy is not enough. Good leaders have to understand the human aspect of change and learn how to plan and execute it correctly. The "soft” side of change has very “hard” and concrete implications: mastering it needn’t be a mystery.
The training is based on the 8-Step Process of Dr. Kotter and accounts for some cross-cultural specifics within the political and organizational setup in the Baltic States.
