About the Course

Grasp the necessary tools and techniques for you and your client to sustain the motivation and momentum needed to implement all of the action plans to solve your client’s problem. Learn to manage the natural resistance – the client’s and yours – when dealing with change.  Efficiently monitor and evaluate status and progress as action plans are implemented. Effectively intervene when needed and in a manner so the client maintains ownership in the implementation.

This course can be completed as a stand-alone or as part of the Certificate-Series Collaborative Consulting Training.  If the focus of your consulting is primarily on accomplishing significant change in organizations, then you might also take CDI’s course Perspectives on Change in Organizations.
