Change Management Seminar

This seminar provides executives with the necessary skills to purposefully manage and successfully implement major changes in their company. The seminar address-es hard aspects of change processes, such as systems and structures, as well as soft factors of communication and leadership in transitional periods.


Successfully implementing a strategic realignment or sensible reorganization is one of the most challenging tasks in management. It is often easier to build something new than to convince an organization or culture of an inevitable change.

Achieving satisfactory results in this endeavor requires pursuing a common goal on two levels: The necessary changes have to be applied to the so-called hard facts in order to anchor new goals and behaviors within the structures, processes, and incentive systems. In terms of the soft facts, we need to convince employees of the new path, allay their fears and uncertainties, and spark enthusiasm for the new challenge.

Both approaches pursue the same goal. However, the competencies required for a successful implementation differ considerably. Logic and understanding of the sys-tem on one side, empathy and charisma on the other. Only synergizing and coordinating both of these approaches will lead to the desired change.
