Book by Dr. Barbara Trautlein


Become a more agile leader by learning tactics to influence-up, collaborate cross-functionally, and motivate direct reports to forge partnerships up, down, and across the organization. From new technologies to increasingly demanding customer expectations to new generations entering the workforce, we are all are bombarded with never-ending change. Especially in this time of global crisis, it is more important than ever that "leaders at every level" know how to lead (not 'merely manage' or 'reactively cope with') change. Are you frustrated that no matter what you try, your change initiatives seem to either fail outright or produce gains that don't last? The reality is that as many as 70% of organizational change efforts fall short of expectations. Yet, your team's impact and your career progress hinge on your ability to lead successful and sustainable change. In this dynamic workshop, you’ll get beyond the buzzwords and leverage a proven formula for change. The CQ® System for Developing Change Intelligence® is based on decades of leading transformational change across diverse industries, years of conducting global research on managing change, and study into the psychology and neuroscience of change. Through highly-interactive exercises and real-life examples you’ll learn how to:
  • Overcome resistance to change by reframing resistance from enemy to ally and using it as a powerful source of information to lead others to embrace change
  • Enlighten the head, engage the heart, equip the hands to get people moving in positive, new directions so change sticks
  • Become a more agile leader by learning tactics to influence-up, collaborate cross-functionally, and motivate direct reports to forge partnerships up, down, and across the organization
  • Diagnose your own Change Intelligence, and build the CQ of the people and teams you lead
  • Develop your CQ to drive change that gets results, recoups your investment, and makes a bottom line difference for your organization, team and career
  • Emerge as a more competent and confident - and less stressed and frustrated – leader of change
