Engaging Stakeholders

NOTE: The Certificate in Engaging Stakeholders and Leading Change is under review and will not be available for 2020 - 2021 however, Aligning Team and Organization is scheduled to run this year. Those who have registered for the certificate will have extensions to complete the program when it becomes available. Please contact us at epd@smu.ca if you have any questions.

In today’s world change is the routine. Half of everything you know about doing your job will be obsolete in 3 - 4 years – the trouble is nobody knows which half.

To lead successfully in this fast-changing and complex world, you have to be able to engage multiple stakeholders and tap their strengths to create win-win-win solutions, get buy-in and commitment to ongoing change, and break away from ‘the way it’s always been done’ to create solutions that will work not only today, but tomorrow. On top of this, we are moving into the greatest labour crisis in history as the baby boomers retire en masse, and younger workers have different demands and expectations. They have zero tolerance for autocrats and bureaucrats – they want coaches and mentors, not bosses – and they want to be engaged in developing the strategies they implement. This certificate program provides you with the foundational skills you need to navigate complexity and lead co-creatively.
