About the Course

Good leaders manage change and guide teams effectively through rapidly evolving situations. They understand how to track shifting priorities and adapt strategies to meet moving targets. Change is a given and you can count on it disrupting best laid plans in the workplace, the lab, at school, or within the ACS. Your best option is to learn and practice skills to ensure that your team remains focused, productive and future-oriented when change comes your way. Success requires leadership that can guide others through change by meeting reality head-on, connecting with the new vision, planning a new approach, and engaging others to join in moving the project forward.

This four-hour course outlines processes for guiding others through periods of change and will teach you how to:

  • Skillfully manage shifting team priorities
  • Change the direction of a project or reconfiguring teams
