General Interest Courses

Many change efforts meet a tidal wave of resistance, marking out the boundaries of learning capacity. This is often blamed on something called resistance to change, which can occur at any level of an organization. But resistance to change is a complex concept. More often than not, it is a lack of understanding and an unconscious reaction to uncertainty -- an attempt to stabilize change. This course helps you to understand and work with the dynamics of corporate culture, power, and politics, so that you can create the conditions in which people and their organizations change and thrive.
