AIM Changer: Leading People through Change

Game-changing program to lead through change and disruption.

Who is this program for?

  • This course is for those who lead teams and are faced with changes they are expected to implement successfully within in their team - perhaps you're a manager or director who has to adopt a new system or process or a leader who needs to comply with global methodology changes. 
  • Change Instigators - those who are initiating change and/or needing to lead teams and organizations through change (chosen or imposed change) 
  • You may not have chosen the change or you may be the instigator, either way, this program will give you the tools to support and engage your people to commit to the change and realize the benefits within in your team and organization.  
  • AIM Changer is not about change management methodology and tools (we'll leave that the change / project managers), it's about how everyday leaders engage their teams, deal with resistance, and build commitment and momentum to realize the benefits of change - through conversation.
