Would you like to make a bigger impact at work, but wonder how to implement change across an entire organization when you’re part of a small team or even just one person?
What if you had a set of proven principles and approaches to help you design and influence any kind of change at work, whether you’re changing a system, process, organization, strategy, or culture? By using a structured yet flexible approach to change, you could get better results with less frustration — for yourself and everyone else involved.
Equip yourself with these practical methods, tools, and skills to facilitate the adoption of change in your organization by attending this in-depth online Fundamentals of Influencing Change at Work course.
Who Should Attend?
The methodology taught in this course has been used by people working within organizations who are responsible for implementing change without having much authority. While these change practitioners go by many titles, they have one thing in common: in order to achieve the desired results, other people in the organization will need to change the way they work.
You will benefit from attending this workshop if:
You are planning a project, and want to figure out how to get people to adopt the new way of doing things.
You’re in the middle of a project that isn’t going as well as you hoped.
You’re a human resources, project management, information technology, process improvement, or other professional who recognizes that people will make or break your ability to get things done.
You want to build the change capability of your organization and seek practical tools.
You’re a new or experienced change practitioner looking to expand your toolkit, increase your influence, and qualify for the Association of Change Management Professionals’ (ACMP®) Certified Change Management Practitioner (CCMP™) accreditation.
By completing the Fundamentals of Influencing Change at Work course, you will:
Understand how change works at an individual and organizational level
Learn a straightforward model to organize change management activities
Clarify what really needs to change to achieve the desired results
Learn how to spot, anticipate, and reduce resistance
Identify how to gain leadership support and engage stakeholders
Design key elements of your change initiative, such as communication plans
Build the skills to boost and apply your personal influence.
The course will take place two hours, twice a week on Thursdays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern (10:00 am to 12:00 am Pacific; 6:00 to 8:00 pm UTC). Check your time zone.

A sound change methodology and a toolkit full of practical templates give you a solid foundation as a change practitioner. Yet, designing change alone will not achieve results. Your ability to implement change relies on effectively using your influence. In this Fundamentals workshop, we take traditional change management one step further by building your influence skills throughout the methodology. After three days, you’ll leave not only with a set of tools that will help you design your change initiative, but with practical steps you can personally take to influence change at work.
