About the Course

In a faster changing world in which firms must deal with unpredictable changes in the economical, technological and political context, general management is confronted with the major challenge to adjust or to transform their organizations to stay profitable and sustainable. Most change efforts boil down to the same mission: Can you get people to start behaving in a new way?

Figuring out what needs to change is often easier than actually making change happen. Therefore, this course is meant to help you develop the theoretical frameworks and practical skills necessary to become an effective change agent in whatever situation you find yourself. We will explore the psychology of sustainable behavior change and how we, as leaders, can apply this to transform organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand core topics and principles relevant to leading and achieving change

  • Effectively apply psychological principles to change problems

  • Create plans for improving your management and leadership practice
