The New Change Equation | Weatherhead

Program Structure

The New Change Equation is a seven-week digital course with online video assignments, supplemental materials, peer reviews, discussion boards and a collaborative group project.

Designed with the flexibility and convenience working professionals need, participants can engage with their course content whenever it works for their schedules. All webinars will be recorded so those who are unable to watch live won't miss any of the course content.

Participants should expect to spend approximately four hours per week dedicated to their course work: a mix of individual learning, collaborative group projects, and social learning.

The course will include a two-hour online, interactive launch with David Cooperrider, followed by more than twenty video lectures by David with supplemental program materials.

Each week, a summary of key concepts and trending discussions by faculty, staff and participants will be shared, and at the conclusion of the course, participants will have ongoing access to the program materials for 90 days, plus a comprehensive participant guide, complete with program notes and personal revelations discovered throughout the program, to reference in the months and years to come.
