Location: Buchanan Hall—Advanced Technology and Business Center
There are many different programs on change management and change agency, but what can we take from these programs and scholarly research on change which we can apply to real life? Our research has found that leaders at various levels of management in organizations need different skills to thrive – do you have the skills necessary to make change happen from the ground up? This session will be an abridged version of an initiative developed for industry to effectively lead and manage positive change both in your professional and personal life. Changing workplace and societal culture is one of the largest challenges we face today and this session will provide tools and insights how to make positive change a reality. Our research has found that whether you are an entry level manager, middle manager or executive manager you need different sets of skills. However, no matter what level you're at today or you strive to be at in the future, you must be able to cultivate change.
