An innovative way for individuals and organizations to experience Kotter’s change training!

Truly brings change management principles and practices to life.

Kotter’s approach allows the learner to go deep into sophisticated concepts in ways that are digestible and practical.

The exercises were straightforward and illustrative of change.

It’s an immersive experience after which one can readily apply learnings to real-life scenarios and business challenges.

An interactive session that made learning fun!

A phenomenal opportunity to spread methodologies that work and equip teams with the skills to drive real transformational changes.

The tools and resources are high quality and practical as well.

This program offers both the theory to change as well as tools and methodologies to immediately put your learning to work.

It just really helps participants break into the material.

I loved getting to meet, learn from, and network with other professionals for perspective and insight into my own challenge.

Fantastic facilitation and conversation.

The absolute need to generate opportunities for quick wins and to appropriately recognize those wins was essential.

Kotter’s approach to the neuroscience of change provides incredible applicability and range for organizations like ours.

Linking the head and heart, but more importantly providing the tools to speak to both has accelerated progress in ways I couldn’t have imagined!

The need to develop implementation + acceleration plans was a game changer.

Igniting Urgency + Building a Guiding Coalition

A Sense of Urgency is arguably the most critical – and often under-leveraged – ingredient in both inspiring and sustaining change. Learn how to create true urgency, and practice how to keep people on board and energized about your change. Then explore how to identify, recruit, engage, and equip a set of people to serve as your Guiding Coalition – spearheading the coordination of efforts over the course of your change.

Shaping a Vision + Gaining Buy-In

How do you paint a compelling picture of the future, and how do you help people see what will need to be done in order to make that vision a reality? Most importantly, how do you get them bought into this vision so they are inspired to help?

Learn how to craft an inspiring vision, and practice techniques that will allow you to win over even the biggest skeptics by more effectively navigating the objections they throw at you.

Removing Barriers to Enable Action

Barriers to change exist across systems and processes as well as culturally through mindsets, behaviors, and actions.

Generating Wins to Demonstrate Progress

Wins are the molecules of success – the proof points of progress. Learn how to build momentum around, reinforce, and sustain change through the practice of generating, discovering, communicating, and celebrating wins.

Ensuring Sustainable Implementation

Change requires constant reinforcement and support in order to be sustained and fully embedded. Learn how to assess the progress of your transformation, analyze where you are (and how much further you still need to go), and evaluate your systems and processes to ensure they reinforce – and do not detract from – the transformed organization. Leverage the power of storytelling and case studies to institute your change.
