Jeff Duffield, Director, Program Management, Linkage

​Individuals are much more likely to support change when they are brought into the process and have a support system in place to help them cope with the change.

What’s better than an employee prepared for change? How about an entire staff that’s prepared for change and continues delivering great results without missing a beat?

One thing that remains constant in organizations today is change—change of structures and policies, change of personnel and changing business needs. It’s all too easy to focus on the logistics and overlook the personal side of things, but the personal, human side is a critical component to any change’s success.

Linkage’s Leading Organizational Transition: Train-the-Trainer Program, offered in partnership with William Bridges Associates, is designed to ensure your full team’s readiness by developing an in-house resource certified to provide training and readiness services.

Perfect for human resource and organization development professionals, this three-day program certifies participants to deliver two skill-building workshops to internal staff as needed.

This workshop isn’t just about certifying internal resources; it’s about fostering an environment that supports employee growth, job satisfaction, and productivity.

What Our Attendees Are Saying

This may not have been necessary 20 years ago, but I think transition management has to be a regular part of any company’s leadership training program.
