      A holistic take on Change Leadership

      Prof. Lechner's class was amazing, to say the least. Her take on Change Leadership isn't just about a set of tools/spreadsheets that can be used to 'manage' change. She starts with providing a conceptual understanding of Change and the different motivations behind that. I have attended CL courses before, however, this one elevated the entire understanding to a different level. She did share simple and intuitive frameworks to use for execution. I recommend this course to Change practitioners, leaders or anyone who would like an in-depth knowledge of what triggers change and how to lead through it.

      (Real) thought provoking class

      Professor Lechner delivers an eye-opening course about identifying change and dealing with it. In particular, I liked the framework she provides since you can see how you can apply it to your own "universe", big or small.
