(Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Management Concepts announces three courses focusing on Leading Organizational Transformation developed exclusively to meet needs of senior government leaders. Courses include Leading Cultural Transformation, Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing, and Leading Complex Change. To accommodate senior leaders’ schedules and enable them to adapt best practices between the sessions, the courses—all four days in length—will be delivered one day per month for four consecutive months.
Leading Cultural Transformation focuses on transforming an organization’s culture through an intentional, masterful approach to sustained evolution. Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing develops the skills necessary to build collaborative, knowledge-sharing practices within organizations from a communication and leadership perspective. Leading Complex Change offers effective ways to lead small and large change efforts, particularly within the context of external environments and pressures.
Using Case studies; individual, small- and large-group practical exercises and action learning groups; facilitator presentations; readings; application planning participants will master the competencies needed to lead their organization.
Casey Wilson, Director of Leadership and Management Practices, observes: “Cultural transformation is one of the most difficult and misunderstood responsibilities of senior leadership in organizations. We designed these classes specifically for senior leaders so they are not away from their organization for more than one day at a time, and the once a month schedule provides time between classes to connect with other leaders and implement the strategies they have mastered in class. These courses provide leaders with the tools necessary to be successful in transforming their departments into high performance organizations.”
