Metcalf & Associates Announces Launch of Online Innovative Leadership Organizational Transformation Program

Metcalf & Associates, Inc., announces the launch of the online organizational program based on the Innovative Leaders Guide to Transforming Organizations, written by CEO Maureen Metcalf, named Best Business Reference Book in the 2013 International Book Awards.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 12, 2014

The Online Leaders Guide to Transforming Organizations focuses on leaders and managers who are implementing transformative change. Participants receive 46 weekly emails and apply the methods and philosophy of the Innovative Leaders Guide to Transforming Organizations as its foundation. Additionally, participants have the option to take part in webinars and can also select a coaching to accompany the online development process for an additional fee. This program provides a range of options for leaders to enhance their skills and transform their organizations.

Leading change starts with leadership and yet, in many organizations, the process of transforming organizations often omits the idea that transforming leaders is an integral part of the overall transformation process. This program to transforming organizations starts with an approach to leadership called innovative leadership. It is a comprehensive model defining five key leadership elements required to successfully transform organizations. It provides a change model focusing on organization and leader change concurrently, gives an example of how an innovative leader transforms his organization, and offers practical tools and steps to lead change.

Because innovative leadership influences by engaging the four dimensions or belief, action, culture, and systems equally, innovative leaders are uniquely qualified—and have a much higher success rate—to transform organizations. A primary reason for transformation failure is that leaders focus on the systems, rather than the larger context that includes themselves as leader and the organizational culture.

During this decade of increased complexity and failed change initiatives, amid an accelerated need for change, it is critical for organizations to identify new models that address these challenges while maintaining efficient and effective operations. This program provides models that increase your ability to successfully implement sustained change.

According to Carla Paonessa, Accenture Managing Partner, Retired, “This guide is designed to organize the chaos that accompanies transformative and systemic change. Metcalf delineates the process into seven categories that are straightforward and easy to follow. She gives templates to help group the work. She offers examples and tells stories of how this method has worked. And, more importantly, she illustrates and integrates the personal “inside” work of the leader with the “outside” work of the organization. We’re introduced to Paul, an executive who takes his organization through transformative change, and are privy to the conversation Paul has with himself as he applies what he has learned about himself and what he learns about his organization: What do I do? What do I believe? How do we do this?”
