Why attend Managing the Human Side of Disruption?

With continuous digital innovation and the COVID-19 pandemic creating a heavier reliance on technology, organizations globally have had to rapidly digitalize their operations and processes to remain competitive. At the same time, employees have had to take on new roles, transform their capabilities, and manage the psychological effects these transitions can cause. To ensure a successful, digitally driven transformation, business leaders require the skills to lead their companies, people, and teams through change and the knowledge to help reduce the emotional impact.

Then, you’ll explore the most common emotional responses to digital change and analyze the interplay between the three dimensions of a transformation to create a positive, productive outcome. Finally, you’ll walk away with approaches to confidently and successfully manage digital transformation.
