Strategic management
Managing change processes - with inspiration, involvement and direction

30 November - 4 December 2020, Gouda, Netherlands
3-7 May 2021, Berlin, Germany

About the course
Today's leaders are to an increasing extent asked to be visionary and to act within rapidly changing environments. They are asked to inspire, motivate and empower others to work for their visions and to engage in learning and change processes. At the same time they have to produce concrete results that fit with the organisational strategy. The management is often caught between the desire to involve and listen to staff and the need to implement certain strategies and decisions.

The course targets managers and other change agents who wish to create sustainable change in their team, organisation or community. The course will focus on building commitment within management and among stakeholders, on planning and facilitating a successful change process as well as on the follow-up, ensuring that new initiatives are embedded in the daily practice. The participant will work on their own change ideas and receive feedback on their work.

The course will give you...
  • An understanding of how to create management commitment as well as involvement of the wider system in complex realities with many stakes.
  • A chance to practice asking the right questions with a diverse number of people
  • Methods to structure and plan open-ended processes … and the confidence to facilitate them even when things do not turn out as planned
  • An ability to create clarity and set the framework, ensuring that change processes lead towards organisational goals.
  • A possibility to work on a tailor-made plan that fits your actual needs/visions (selecting the right focus, involving stakeholders, planning the process and the follow-up)
  • An opportunity to receive coaching on your exact challenges in relation to implementing your ideas at home

The course fee for this four day course is 750 Euro, which can be almost fully covered by an Erasmus+ grant (plus travel and stay). Of course, our courses are open to anyone, also without Erasmus+ grants!
