“While I've taken change management courses in the past, I've struggled with applying what I've learned in the classroom. With the Change Leadership program, Yvonne’s practical examples and hands-on exercises provided a completely different approach, focusing not just on concepts and techniques but how to work with them in the real world.
I now feel much more confident in understanding how to lead change and embody it, regardless of whether I’m pushing up to get buy-in from senior management or more broadly to staff.”
“I did not feel that I was as equipped as I could be to drive change effectively, but that changed. I strongly recommend this practical change leadership course as it taught me skills that I was immediately able to use in my current project. It also contained a lot of sample scenarios which made it very relatable and easy to apply. ”Eniola, Lead Business Analyst

This course provided me with more confidence in my ability to facilitate change as well as resources and professional support to continue practicing as an advocate for change”Christine D, Change Advocate & Self Employed

How does this program compare to other change management certifications?
It all depends on your objectives. If you are looking for the missing component that will help you raise your level of influence within your organization, a program that goes beyond theories to help you gain practical knowledge and skills, or looking to hit the ground running at work on your current projects or at job interviews, then this is the right program for you. We focus on the practical ‘what’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ to help you successfully lead and manage change in your organization. As well as to position, elevate and future-proof your career.
Who is this program for?
We like to say ‘everyone’, as change leadership is quickly becoming a required competency in today’s rapidly and disruptive business environment to stay relevant. However, if you are a people manager, change manager, innovator, project professional, business analyst, organizational development professional or responsible for leading change in your organization, this course and program is a must for you.
How is this program being delivered?
This program is delivered online with your private log-in and learning area. It will include 6 modules with videos and audio content, live teachings, reading materials, practical case studies, change leadership methodologies, exercises and activities, and sample templates, to provide you with an optimal learning experience. Live teaching and group coaching sessions take place twice a month on Saturdays 10am EST, and you are able to ask questions and meet other students. You also have exclusive access to a private online community, where you can ask questions, and interact and network with other change leaders as yourself.
Can I join anytime?
Yes you can. You’ll have immediate access to the lessons and modules, which you can go through at your own pace. However, for the live teaching and group coaching sessions, these are delivered in cohorts, and you can either join an ongoing cohort depending on when you start the program, or join at the beginning of the next cohort. We find that some participants prefer to start and end the program at their own pace, without attending any of the live sessions, and watch the live teaching replays.
How does each cohort work?
While you can enroll anytime to access the video lessons, live teaching & group coaching sessions are done on a cohort basis. Each cohort runs for 3 months with 6 bi-monthly live teaching sessions within each cohort. Each of the live teaching sessions complement the 6 modules within the program. You will automatically be enrolled in the cohort closest to your enrollment date, or you can choose to join the next cohort. If you enroll in the middle of an ongoing cohort, you will have access to all the lessons still and recorded live classes. The choice will be yours to make. There will be three cohorts that open each year. Summer Cohort (June to August), Fall Cohort (September - November), and a Winter/Spring Cohort (February - April)
What if I cannot join live sessions?
That’s okay. Recording of live teaching sessions will be uploaded to the community as well. As well, you will always have the option to ask questions by posting it in the online community.
How long do I have access to this program?
Always. To have lifelong access to the modules and it’s future updates, you need to complete all the lessons within a 12 week period of your cohort group.
What happens if I don’t finish the modules in time?
You will be given a 14 day extension to go through the lessons and complete the program. If you still don’t finish your lessons by then, your program access will be revoked. To regain access, you will be required to pay a fee to cover administration costs.
Do I need any prior knowledge of Change Management?
No, you do not. But you need to have an interest in change leadership! The course and program kicks-off with the fundamentals of change leadership and management concepts to get you started or reacquaint you with the subject area.
Do I get a certificate?
Yes. Upon completion, you will be issued a certificate to demonstrate completion of the program, and your newly gained change leadership skills and competencies.
Can I earn PDUs for ACMP, Change Management Institute, PMI, IIBA etc.?
Definitely. If you’re looking to maintain your certification, this program will help you earn PDU points under the “Leadership” category.
Will this make me a certified Change Manager?
No, but this program will help you earn your PDU points to maintain your Change Management Certification. Most importantly, it will help you become a more competent and effective Change Manager.
How much coaching and mentorship do I get?
You get a total of 6 group live teaching and coaching sessions. That happens 2x a month every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at 10am EST. You also get ongoing support, and can ask unlimited questions within the online community.
