Description:  Are you frustrated that no matter what you try, your change projects seem to either fail outright or produce gains that don’t last?  The reality is that a high percentage of change fails, or at least fall short of expectations.  As a Project Management professional, your career progress hinges on your ability to lead successful and sustainable change.  Every project is a change – so every Project, Program, and Portfolio Manager is a “change leader!”  In this interactive presentation, you’ll get introduced to how to get beyond the buzzwords and leverage a proven formula for change.  The CQ® System for Developing Change Intelligence® is based on decades of change leadership in the workplace, years of conducting global research on managing change, and study into the psychology and neuroscience of change.  Through real-life examples you’ll discover how to reframe resistance from enemy to ally, so you can build relationships that get results, by learning how to “engage the Heart,” “enlighten the Head,” and equip the Hands” to lead people in positive, new directions so change sticks.  You will emerge as a more competent and confident – and more agile and effective – Project Management Professional.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover tactics to engage for change with your stakeholders including sponsors, team members, and those on the front lines impacted by your projects.  
  • Diagnose your own Change Intelligence®, learn the strengths and blind spots of your Change Leadership Style, and walk-away with action steps to be more effective in your project leadership role.
  • Develop your Change Intelligence® to lead successful and sustainable change for your organization, team, and career.
