Transitions are inevitable, in work and in life. Navigating them well is every leader’s responsibility. Building on the Transition-Curve Framework (research and practice on adjustment, learning, emotional response curves, and more), this unique program will help you better manage uncertainty and successfully lead others through the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional arcs that accompany disruptive change.
Change has been, and always will, be constant. The role of a leader is to identify the uncertainty that surrounds change and create the context for talking about and managing it. Disruptive change—events that challenge our lives, organizations, industries, and societies in fundamental ways—raises the stakes on all the above. How we navigate the transitions that result from disruption has a direct impact on outcomes.
Led by Hal Gregersen and Roger Lehman, this innovative new program, conducted live online, takes a deep dive into the social and psychological journey that accompanies transition. You will explore and apply key concepts and tools to guide yourself and others successfully through the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional arcs of individual and team transitions—the Transition-Curve Framework. By understanding how people move through these three arcs at their own pace, you will be better equipped to build organizational support for yourself and high-performing teams before, during, and after transitions. And you will be able to avoid common leadership mistakes that over-emphasize performance and de-emphasize the human side of transitions.
This course will include customized graphic illustrations to serve as a dynamic tool for reflection and application. Pre-reading materials will also be provided.
