The Change Leader’s Roadmap Navigator School

Loading Events

The Change Leader’s Roadmap™ (CLR) Navigator School is our flagship program for developing your capability as a change leader or consultant.

This program is not about the content solutions of what to change; rather, we teach you how to make any change you lead or consult to be successful, including designing the best process for determining the right solutions at the right point in the change process. The bottom line – in these five days, you will learn how to achieve greater results in your change efforts, faster and with less human and capital costs. And, you will substantially raise the bar on the value you bring to your projects and organization, making you stand out as a competent leader or consultant to organizational change. This is especially true if your change initiatives are transformational and complex.

Course Prerequisites


  • Go Beyond Change and Project Management

    The CLR Navigator School takes you well beyond the traditional approaches of project management and change management. You develop a deep understanding of what it takes to successfully lead or consult to organization transformation, and how to set up your projects for success right from the start, with the focus on how to generate breakthrough change results. You learn numerous strategies to successfully handle the complex people dynamics of transformation, including how to mobilize commitment, reduce resistance, optimize engagement, achieve full adoption, and deliver impactful change communications.

    You also learn how to handle the complex process dynamics of transformation by developing a foundational understanding of The Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology (CLRM). You learn how to use the CLRM as a strategic guidance system, so you can effectively design and implement a successful change process for any type, scale or focus of change. In the CLR User Training portion of the program, you learn the logic flow of all nine phases of The Change Leader’s Roadmap and dig into its extensive online resources. You explore the thirty CLR High Leverage Tasks and learn how to navigate the full breadth of the CLR’s guidance, which includes:

    • 9 phases of change
    • 19 activities
    • 77 tasks
    • 120+ tools and worksheets
    • 2000 pages of pragmatic information and guidance

    And, you get real work done because everything we teach is case-applied to you as a change leader or consultant and to your current project. Once you become familiar with the entire CLR, you can then successfully tailor it to streamline your project plans to achieve your desired outcomes in the most expedient and effective way. That is our goal!

Outcomes from the CLR Navigator School:

  • How to lead organization transformation so it delivers breakthrough results
  • How to recognize the different types of change so you can develop strategies that will work for your initiative’s type
  • How to use The Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology to design a change process that sets up each change initiative for success and ensures full adoption and sustainment of business results
  • Your project’s level of risk against the ten most common mistakes made in leading transformation—and how to use the CLRM to avoid or mitigate them
  • How to minimize and resolve the complex “people issues” catalyzed by transformation—such as poor adoption, resistance, politics, anger, fear, and loss
  • How to launch your change initiatives to ensure clear change leadership roles and decision-making, executive alignment and support, and accurate scope
  • Strategies for engaging your stakeholders early so they opt-in and commit to making the change a success for themselves and the organization
  • The powerful influence of mindset on the success of change and how to address it in your change plan and throughout your change effort
  • How to build powerful and transformative desired outcomes, Case for Change, Change Strategy and communications
  • How to raise and address securing adequate capacity for change
  • How your new change leadership skills will amplify your contribution and value to your change sponsors and organization, advancing both your career and your impact
  • How to customize and tailor your use of the CLRM resources and tools for each change effort so you streamline your change process, reduce cost and accelerate speed

  • You will leave the CLR Navigator School program:

    • Equipped with the confidence, structure, process and toolkit to lead the most complex transformations successfully
    • Knowing how to build on your project management, change management, OD or Six Sigma repertoires to generate a more integrated and powerful change plan from launch to sustained results
    • Expertly handling the human dynamics of change from the beginning of a project
    • Executing optimal change strategies to drive adoption and breakthrough business results
    • Able to initiate the conversations critical to up-leveling your change plans in real time with your sponsors, change leaders and project teammates
    • Comfortable with navigating the breadth of resources in the online CLR Methodology and four months of free access to it

The CLR Navigator School is appropriate for change consultants, change leaders, project managers, change management and organization development practitioners, and intact project teams wishing to advance their change plans and collectively access and navigate the breadth of the CLR resources to support their project work to deliver maximum ROI from change.

For in-house programs, we recommend that intact project teams attend and/or all internal change consultants from all disciplines. For public programs, participants come from across industries and countries.

The Leading Transformation program is appropriate for the same audiences, with the exception that the participant or client will not have access to the full online CLR Methodology resources and tools unless they later choose to attend the CLR User Training—the remaining two days of the CLR Navigator School.

  • Format

    Both the Leading Transformation program and the CLR Navigator School begin with a pre-work project questionnaire to ready your thinking and clarify your live project status. You will apply your course learnings directly to your projects and gain insight from discussing others’ project work. There will be lectures, project application work and lively group discussions, guided by a participant manual and your program leaders.

    The program materials include “The Change Leader’s Roadmap Overview” and “CLR Checklist” booklets, a Participant Manual, handouts, and a Certificate of Completion.

    For those attending the full CLR Navigator School, you will receive an advance email with a special code to access the online CLRM on your own computer to learn how to navigate its breadth of resources and focus on those that are immediately relevant to your project. You will also receive an additional Participant Manual, more resources, and a Certificate of Completion as a CLR Navigator which you can proudly list among your professional credentials. And a gift of completion!

    Access to the Online CLRM

    Upon completion of the five days of the CLR Navigator School, you receive a free four-month individual subscription to the online Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology, providing you unlimited access to its wealth of resources so you can apply them on your projects.

    My Choice Fees: After your four months of free online access to the CLRM, we put the power of price in your hands. You choose your own CLRM subscription rate based on your use and the value to you, your project or clients. Our published retail annual individual subscription to the CLRM is $975, but you can pay more or less, however you wish. We call this My Choice Fees. We hope you like it.

    For graduates of in-house programs, you get this same package unless your organization has licensed the CLRM. In that case, your access is free as it is already paid for by your organization. If you leave your organization, you can still access the CLRM via My Choice Fees and an individual subscription.
