Creating a Context for Change: Leading through Organizational Development
Description
This web-based course will focus on leadership effectiveness particularly in terms of facilitating innovation and change within an organization and achieving an organizational context that is conducive to continuous improvement and a never-ending commitment to excellence. As effective leaders, we strive to create a shared vision of the future and then mobilize people, processes, and resources to achieve that vision. Effective leaders treat innovation and change as a continuous process, not as a single event or series of staccato or stop-and-go actions. By establishing and maintaining a continuous forward momentum, leaders can engage others in working together to be adaptable and flexible in their ongoing pursuit of their shared vision.
