About This Course
In order for change to advance, you must demonstrate progress through visible wins. At the end of the day, people like winning because winning feels good – it feeds our Thrive channel and gives us the confidence and energy to charge ahead.
Wins can take many forms and are exhibited through what we do, the ways we work, and how we think. In this course, you will learn how to build a wins strategy, generate high-impact, short-term results, and create a winning mindset in your organization. You will tackle questions such as:
- What is a win?
- How will I recognize a win when I see it?
- What do I do with a win once I’ve identified it?
- How can I help my team or organization engineer wins to show what is possible?
Accelerating Results was designed by Kotter experts to introduce a model for leading wins and accelerating results that anyone can implement. As part of the experience, you’ll see examples of what wins look like and how they can be celebrated and communicated. You’ll also have the opportunity to practice sharing and communicating wins by reflecting on your own change.
With the Science of Change and real-life stories as reference, you’ll immediately practice applying what you’ve learned to your change.
