Leading Deep Change

Created in partnership with: Robert Quinn


Resistance to change – deep, transformational change – as you will hear from Dr. Quinn in this course, is one of the most powerful forces in business today. Deep change is hard, but absolutely necessary for excellence. Dr. Quinn will share impactful stories about this topic and ask you to contemplate and implement ways to be a leader who works against the natural organizational biases toward stability, structure and bureaucracy. Daily topics include:

  1. Organizations need to make deep change
  2. People deny the need for deep change
  3. Deep change begins with the leaders
  4. Deep change challenges the existing mindset
  5. The need for deep change is universal

This one-week sprint is part of a 20-week series theĀ 100-Day Leader’s Journey designed to help you develop the leadership skills already inside you, by regularly dedicating about ten minutes of your valuable time each day to taking charge of your own leadership development. You will be challenged to not only think about what it means to become a more effective leader, but you will be asked to take what you learn every day, put it into practice (or, at least try an experiment or two), and share the results and impact of your actions with the colleagues taking this journey with you.
