Achieve Breakthrough Results through Transformation

In this video series, Co-Instructors Dr. Dean Anderson and Dr. Linda Ackerman Anderson explore what it means to achieve breakthrough, what transformational change is, the evolution of change management to transformational change and what it takes to lead transformation and adapt to constant change successfully.

 

How to Break Through Limitations and Barriers to Achieve the Extraordinary

Learn how to break free of conventional thinking and strategies to achieve new possibilities previously thought unattainable.

 

How You Can Achieve Breakthrough Results through Transformational Change

We discuss what transformation is and the critical components you must address in all transformational change efforts. 

 

Conscious Change Leadership: How to Transform to Achieve Breakthrough

We explore Conscious Change Leadership, a comprehensive Field of Study about human development and large systems transformation.

Given the global pandemic, digitization and our social, economic, and environmental challenges, continual change and transformation is our new normal. Thriving in this complexity requires masterful change leadership skills.

Join the two masters of transformation to learn their best practices, culled from 40 years of being strategic advisors to senior executives in Fortune 500, government, and global NGO organizations. Individually and collectively, these key strategies will generate a paradigm shift in your approach to change.

Learning these strategies will significantly increase your personal presence and capability as a corporate, government or community leader, activist, or change consultant. They will forever up-level the way you both think about and lead transformation.

Learn the "HOW" of transformational change.

Research shows that 60-70% of all transformational change efforts fail. Why?

Because leaders and change consultants use conventional mindsets, methods and strategies that are partial and insufficient. Transformational Change is complex and needs a more advanced and robust approach. This course provides it.

The Leading Transformational Change program distills four decades of action research about what works and doesn’t work in leading transformation into 10 key strategies. If you fully deploy these strategies, your transformational change efforts will succeed. To the extent you neglect them, they will fail.

5 People Strategies

You learn five "Best Practice" People strategies that maximize leader and stakeholder commitment and engagement and reduce resistance.

5 Change Process Design Strategies

You learn five Change Process Design strategies for detailed step by step guidance for how-to govern, plan, design and implement transformation.

Starting Masterclass of Conscious Change Leadership

I found this course incredibly helpful in showing me the interconnections that enable change. The 10 strategies form the themes of this course, and are interlinked to create something much more than the sum of their parts. The focus on adult team learning and real (Inner work and outwork) applications is something I haven't found in any other online change course. Welcome to Change Leadership.

Expand to include

This course will transform not only your work life but probably also your way of being in the world. It certainly transformed mine. The beauty of these teachings is they apply to you wether you're a leader, employee, consultant, student or in between. They opened my eyes, pushed my (self-conflicted) boundaries and expanded my comfort zone and thereby the richness of my being. Highly recommended!

Self as instrument

The Being First starting point in you as instrument for change is both meaningful and powerful. Be prepared to learn new things about who you are and how best to make use of your personal qualities in change initiatives. It can be overwhelming at times but it works - and Dean and Linda is there right next to you all the way.
