Identifying & Measuring the Behaviors for Leading Change

Organizational change can be difficult, but that’s no excuse for doing it poorly.

A team of scholars, led by Dr. Bill Pasmore of Columbia University and including Dr. Mike Manning, of Benedictine University’s Center for Values-Driven Leadership, have created a new assessment to help change leaders evaluate their skill.

The Change Leader Behavior Inventory© (CLBI) measures the behaviors that contribute to effective change. After taking the CLBI, individuals receive a detailed report that identifies growth opportunities: areas where they can target their learning in order to become more skilled at leading change.

Pasmore and Manning will introduce Chicago-area change leaders to the CLBI during a free workshop hosted by the Center for Values-Driven Leadership, the CLBI regional partner. In addition to introducing the assessment, the facilitators will outline new workshop content designed to help managers build their competency in the specific change management and change leadership behaviors identified by the inventory.

Who should attend this event? While the public is invited to attend, this workshop is best suited for training, OD, coaching, or HR professionals interested in either becoming a trained facilitator of the CLBI and its workshops, or licensing the assessment and workshops for use in their own company.
