Deals with all the important questions

The course matched all my expectations. It is for beginners, quite like an introduction of the topic but deals with all the important questions. It gave me an overview of the change management process with very helpful insights on why people behave the way they do. I enjoyed Mike's way of speaking, he is a great instructor. Thank you!

I am doing the course in parallel with working in a change process team at work & my learnings are supporting my contribution to the project & increasing my knowledge/confidence

How to lead during change

Overall a very good intro course to change management. The instructor conveyed core concepts and stages that organizations and individuals go through during large changes. The concepts were high level and could have used some more concrete examples. Of course, diving into more detail would have extended the course. On of the benefits of this class is that you can gain a good understanding of what to expect and some good advice on how to lead during change in just a couple hours.

I never thought I would still learn so much from this course

As a Change Manager, I never thought I would still learn so much from this course. Those tips on how to manage resistors are very helpful because sometimes we often forgot that their opinion also matters and maybe they are might be right on some aspects.

Ongoing Project: Change Management Case Study

Throughout the course, you will have short exercises to do, that use the skills we'll cover. They are based on a real organizational change project. Other students and your tutor will support you, endorse your successes, and help you with your questions.

But best of all...

You get personal support from your trainer, Dr Mike Clayton.

Each module has a comments box where you can ask the questions you need answered. 

Your tutor is Dr. Mike Clayton. As a senior manager at international consulting firm, Deloitte, Mike had to deal with conflict among staff, and with clients, and even among clients. But more important, as a senior representative of his firm and a program leader, he needed to avoid escalation of conflict.

Now, as a trainer and facilitator, he has been applying what he learned and teaching it to others. This course represents 15 years' experience of what tools students find most helpful, and 25 years experience in business, managing conflicts large and small.
