What an instructor says

“Change Management is about addressing the needs that people have when they are going through change so that an organization can achieve the results that it is trying to achieve. I recommend Change Management for absolutely everybody who works in an organization with more than two people. Understanding how change works, how people experience change, how you can help lead organizations through change should be a life skill at this point. We can’t stop changing, so therefore we can’t stop trying to manage change.”

Leanne Douglas
Change Management Instructor
