3. Leading with Power & Influence

Leadership is about influence. Making change happen with relatively low collateral damage in terms of relationships, resources and effort, is what effective change leadership is about. In this module, we explore strategies and tactics for building and diffusing the influence energy required to drive your change programme, enabling people to release their creativity and innovative capabilities at their discretion, and managing conflict when it arises.

4.Evaluating and sustaining your change programme

It is important to evaluate the impact of any change initiative in very tangible terms in order to avert a relapse into the organisation’s old ways. But evaluation is not enough, we must also design strategies to facilitate the sustainability of such change programmes. According to the famed philosopher, Aristotle, ‘it is easy to perform a good action, but not easy to acquire a settled habit of performing such actions.’ In this course, we will focus on the imperative of measuring the impact of your change programme and how to sustain the desirable outcomes.


What you will learn:

  1. Evaluate and measure the impact of your change initiative 
  2. How to sustain your change outcomes 
  3. Create a culture that enables openness to change.
