Why change efforts fail - and how to remove those barriers
124 Leadership & Change: Practices to Move People and Organizations
County officials and managers discuss the need for change in their organizations, yet struggle when change is difficult to accomplish within the depths of the organization. This course helps participants move past technical solutions to the practices for approaching adoptive challenges. Discussion highlights why some changes happen relatively quickly while others are stymied. Participants explore change from the perspective of those whom the change affects. Practical discussions focus on design of a change process; practices to diagnose, interpret and select interventions; barriers; and creating an environment in which people can expand their capacity to address adaptive change.
Instructor: Bill Chiat, Dean of CSAC Institute. For the last 35 years, he has worked with hundreds of local agencies in crafting change.
