Leading People Through Change

Leading People Through Change

The reason of failed organizational change efforts is that most of them are driven top-down, with minimal involvement. This leads to wasted time and money, low productivity, and increased employee turnover.

Who should attend:

Top- and middle managers; change agents

Ideal class size:



1 day

Our research shows that if we strengthen involvement during change and emphasize collaboration, the success rate of changes increases from 38% to 58%, implementation time shortens by 33%, and employee commitment improves by 38%. Our program focuses on this as well, since successful companies integrate change leadership into their culture. Leaders uncover the concerns of their staff proactively and involve them into shaping the change continuously.

As the result of Blanchard’s Leading People Through Change program, you will:
  • Strengthen ownership: If you can uncover and identify the predictable concerns of our employees, you lower their resistance and increase their commitment towards the change effort.

  • Accelerate results: People will stand behind the effectively managed organizational changes, which leads to reaching your desired goals faster.

  • Build change leadership capability: Successful companies learn how to execute organizational changes. They integrate the necessary processes and skills into their culture. This makes them more resilient and agile.

  • Reduce risks: The odds of success in the change process increase, therefore you can expect more confidently that your hopes related to the change will be fulfilled.

Executing the change

Change in organizations is often disruptive. But it does not have to be this way.

Blanchard’s Leading People Through Change program teaches how to lead successful change initiatives. Leaders identify and address the predictable concerns employees have and resolve their concerns to increase their buy-in and commitment.

Our program is based on the 30 years of experience Blanchard’s consultants have in change leadership. These are reinforced by the scientific research, pointing out that people resist change less if they get an opportunity to share their concerns, and their leaders manage the change with these in mind.
