This is the most pragmatic change book I have ever read!
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Metcalf & Associates, Inc., announces the launch of the free 9-week trial 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.
The program focuses on leaders and managers who are implementing transformative change within their organizations. Participants receive 9 weekly e-mails 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 coaching to accompany the online development process for an additional fee. This model will provide 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 leading change often omits the idea that transforming leaders is an integral part of the overall transformation process. This program to transform 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. According to Andy Manzer, President and CEO at Schuyler Hospital, “This is the most pragmatic change book I’ve ever read! As a leader implementing transformative change in my hospital, I found the tools and principles in the Innovative Leaders Guide to Transforming Organizations invaluable to our success”.
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.
