Participants will develop their ability to drive change by understanding the importance of involving stakeholders, dealing with resistance, communicating, and building buy- in.  Participants complete the Change Style Indicator® (CSI), which measures three individual styles of approaching and managing change: Conservers, Pragmatists, and Originators; they explore how each style is perceived by others.   Through experiential and interactive activities, participants will enhance their skills in leading and motivating others through organizational change initiatives.
