Prepare your public sector leaders with these change management course options.
Although there are often jokes about how slow government is to change, government entities actually schedule change – in the form of regularly scheduled elections. While elections bring change, so do new laws, policies or mandates (and our favorite – unfunded mandates).
Just like the corporate world, change is also generated from new technology, staff turnover, pandemics, and mergers or realignment within the organization or with another organization. Sometimes, change bubbles up internally in the forms of continuous improvement or process improvement. Phew – lots of change!

Make the Most of the Pandemic
One Day Training
The pandemic generated changes in process and customer service in the public sector at a rate not seen before. Most of the changes were generated by external forces, and they constantly evolved based on statistics and medical research. Just keeping operations going was challenging enough that many leaders did not have time to apply any strategic change management techniques.
While experience is a good teacher, processing that experience through the lens of change theory, will help your leaders apply lessons learned from the pandemic and move change from chaotic and spontaneous to thoughtful and strategic.
This interactive training workshop will start with having your leaders reflect on change practices and take an assessment of their own change responses. They will learn about change theory, responses to change, and their role as a public sector leader in leading and managing change in a department, division, or organization and apply what they learn to assess a change they managed or experienced during the pandemic.
Leading through Change
Half Day Training
This workshop will help your leaders understand their own reactions to change so that they can help others through changes. Your leaders will identify their go-to reactions for change and how it affects their work. They will learn about the change curve, its phases, and how it rolls out. They will apply this information to their role in helping their teams or departments navigate change.
