Leading Change

Leading Change is a three-day core module of the Global Leader program, and it can also be taken as a stand-alone program.

In today’s times of change, the most effective leaders approach change as an opportunity to learn and grow as individuals, teams and organizations. They deal effectively with both the structural side of change and the human side of leading transition. They realize that creating a successful future may require new mindsets and skill sets, and they may need to let go of practices that no longer serve their purpose.

The Leading Change module focuses on developing awareness and skills in how to lead and coach yourself, your team and your organization through change. Numerous tools are introduced and practiced, enabling you to lead and implement change with confidence in your place of work.

Up to 4.5 European credits (EC) can be transferred from the Leading Change program to the Aalto Executive MBA or Aalto MBA program.
