Most of leadership is managing change. But human beings are creatures of habit. And that makes leading change hard. This course will bring you several unconventional ideas to lead change more successfully. It’s another course in bestselling author Paul Smith’s Fireside Chat series where you get to learn from the hard-won wisdom of experienced professionals drawn from interviews Paul conducted with hundreds of CEOs and executives at dozens of companies around the world. Specifically, you’ll learn why people are afraid of change, how to convince people change is necessary, how to make it nearly impossible for them not to change, and techniques to get them more personally involved in the change, among other topics.
