What to Look for in 2015

Leadership West Michigan is the first leadership program to focus on leading change. Provided via Jennifer Maxson, a practice group leader, coach, and consultant from Varnum Consulting, our leadership development focuses on John P. Kotter’s 8-Step Process for Leading Change. This eight-step action plan provides a practical approach to an organized means of leading versus managing change.
