Challenge Assumptions

We all at times hold assumptions (some true, many false) that limit our ability to face the deep challenges where we’d like to see movement. Through a structured process, you’ll evaluate your own assumptions with an emphasis on breaking through limiting beliefs to achieve measurable actions.

Immunity to Change

Curious about why you are stuck and what makes change so difficult? Immunity to Change guides you through an effective process to make progress on your personal, adaptive challenge. Practice self-assessment including competing values and commitments, system pressures and more to uncover what is holding you back from success and learn a new path forward through experimentation.

Apply the Ideas

Dig in to the nuances and the challenges that make exercising leadership and applying these ideas in your system difficult. This program will help you identify and make progress on an adaptive challenge facing your organization and leave with tangible next steps to actively contribute to building a culture of leadership within your context.

What is Lead for Change?

We know people working to create significant change need steady support.

By attending Lead for Change you’ll join others from all sectors and levels of authority with a common aspiration: to move forward on what you care about most. We’re looking for dreamers, those with aspirations for large-scale change both within yourself and within the systems where you live and work.

Our leadership framework has helped thousands more effectively diagnose situations, manage themselves, intervene skillfully and energize others. After completing your first step of the path with Your Leadership Edge, take a deeper dive into the KLC leadership framework with Lead for Change. Gain tangible skills, evaluate assumptions holding you back, receive personalized feedback through an Immunity to Change process and leave with experiments and skills to challenge and support you in your efforts to move forward.
