In this age of constant change, leaders need to embrace agility and guide their teams to drive new initiatives and adjust to new ways of doing things. Whether your organization is launching new products, integrating new technologies, or shifting strategy to meet customer demands, it’s critical to get your people on board and help them understand how to move change forward. In this webinar, we’ll discuss your role as a leader in meeting the challenges of transformation and building new habits that can ease the way along the change journey.

In this webinar you'll preview a sample session by Stephen Sauer, a faculty member in our Specialist to Strategist and Mid-level Executive Programs. He'll focus on frameworks for building new habits that can strengthen your effectiveness as a leader during uncertain times.

We'll discuss how to:

  • Become more agile in embracing change as a leader
  • Identify barriers to winning buy-in from your team, and ways to overcome them
  • Use micro-goals and habits to make change successful
