Creating an Action Plan for Your Organiziation

Wed Feb 10, 2016
9:30 am - 11:30 am

Cary Memorial Library, Lexington

Bob Voss


Effectively leading change in an organization requires the mastery of an integrated set of capabilities and behaviors that enable a leadership team to align culture, structure, strategy and implementation simultaneously. A team needs to be able to assess the current state of their organization, the ideal future state and the primary constraints to both higher team performance and business growth. Then, strategic initiatives for resolving these constraints need to be created and effectively implemented.

Bob will briefly review the Seven Principals for Leading Change, a powerful framework and roadmap for navigating complex change in an organization. The focus of the seminar will be the last of these seven principals, Implementation—the art and science of successfully organizing and leading change projects.

In this workshop you will:

  • Do a self-assessment of the key attributes required to be an effective project leader.
  • Learn about the key components of the life cycle of leading a project
  • Learn how to use some project management tools.
