Event Image Leadership Development Initiatives (LDI) Track II Performance Management - Leading Change (course 1 of 7)
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

LDI Track II, Performance Management is designed for staff with 4 or more years of supervisory experience or supervisors or managers at any level seeking to grow their knowledge and skills.

Our à la carte program invites individuals to register for the seven courses at times that best work with their schedules. We find that participants generally fall into a cohort as they tend to sign up for the courses in order and on the same schedule, but that is not required. You can take all seven courses in a track or just those you are most interested in.  Participants who complete seven courses in one full track will receive an LDI certificate of completion.

Track II is limited to 16 participants per course session in order to provide a program that invites deeper discussions and the opportunity for the participants to share their experience as well as learn from their colleagues.

In the first course of LDI Track II, participants explore how change is always in play in different degrees that affect performance, perception and morale. This course gives participants the knowledge and skills to create a culture that welcomes and thrives on change. Learn how to create a change-friendly workplace; adapt to new circumstances, become more agile, flexible and capable of being proactive in challenging circumstances. The facilitator also offers techniques on how to reduce resistance to change in the workplace.
