Change is a constant in every workplace - and everyone needs to understand it, accept it and contribute to its success. Great leaders know that people are different and that, in order to have an effective team, messages need to come in all shapes and sizes. Understanding the differences people have involving change will give you the language, insight and tools needed to address the most challenging of tasks - getting everyone on board with change.

We will use latest on change management theory to understand how change works in an organization and then we will use the Change Style Indicator assessment to determine your change style.
