Inspiring Change Leaders

In the NIATx model of process improvement, Change Leaders play an essential role in guiding rapid-cycle change projects. They also help to sustain the successful innovations that become part of an organization's culture.

In 2006, NIATx offered the first Change Leader Academy, transforming committed learners into committed leaders. Behavioral Healthcare's October 2006 issue featured a story on this professional development opportunity. Read the complete story at:

NIATx is pleased to offer the Change Leader Academy again in 2007. Please check regularly for complete details.
