Most change initiatives fail and for similar reasons: 80% of companies use a top-down, minimal-involvement approach that ignores the concerns of the people who are affected.*


Leading People Through Change® is unique: its backbone is a high-involvement, collaborative solution that invites all parties into the change process. This inclusive approach draws on research on leading organizational change and our 30 years of experience in the field.


Recent research shows that a high-involvement approach that uses dialogue between change leaders and employees can increase change success by 34% to 58%, decrease implementation time by 33%, and increase employee engagement by 38%.*

70% OF ALL CHANGE INITIATIVES FAIL.** Failed or stalled change initiatives waste time and money, lower productivity and engagement, and increase employee turnover.

Successfully leading organizational change is critical to the success of your company.


The most successful companies stay ahead of the competition by making change a part of their corporate culture. Leaders who know how to lead organizational change proactively surface and address employees’ concerns and involve them throughout the process—and that moves the entire organization forward.

Helping Individuals Adapt To Change

It’s not enough to give change leaders the models and tools they need to lead change. To successfully create a culture that is agile and change-adaptive, everyone in the organization must have the mindsets and skills that help them move toward (versus against) change.


For individuals to move toward change, and even embrace it, they must first learn how to navigate it. The Adapting to Change Online Overview program helps people learn and practice Mindfulness, Curiosity, Courage, and Resilience.

Adapting to Change starts by teaching the fundamental skill of Mindfulness. Once someone can sense their physical and emotional responses to change, they can use simple skills to pause and move forward intentionally. With that foundation in place, the online course teaches three more mindsets: Curiosity, Courage, and Resilience.

Online Course Details

Adapting to Change Online Overview is a 35 to 45-minute course that includes engaging participant materials and learning activities, videos, a robust Activity Guide that supports reflection and action planning, and knowledge checks.

Give your teams and individual contributors throughout the organization the ability to thrive during change by teaching them to be more agile, more adaptive, and confident in their ability to change. Teach them to seek information, reframe change as opportunity versus loss, share concerns and ideas, seek the support they need to make the change, and focus on what they can control.
