ORG LP741 - Adaptive Leadership and Resistance to Change

(Credits: 3)

Change is a complex process. The deeper and more extensive the change, the greater the likelihood there will be significant resistance. Studying the works of Heifetz, Kegan, Lahey and Argyris students will explore in- depth models of change with particular attention to the Adaptive Leadership and Immunity to Change models. We will analyze approaches to transformative change at the individual, team, and organizational level. We will also examine resistance in its many forms to better understand it and to work with it in the service to making change efforts successful.
