Welcome to the Seeding Change Program!

We’ve designed our online training program for the middle strata that makes up most large companies—Program and Project Managers, Change Practitioners, and Mid-Level Leaders—career professionals responsible for planning, navigating, and implementing change in the workplace. 

Is the Seeding Change program right for you? You intuitively know that your foundational skills and capabilities will become in greater demand as disruptive elements driven by next gen technologies—artificial intelligence, robotic automation and smart machines—continue to drive change in the workplace. Although you’re not fearful of the future and seek to be ahead of the curve, you may find yourself overwhelmed, at times, by the amount of change you’re being asked to manage in the workplace.

Your high-touch learning experience at Seeding Change prepares you for unknowns that can trip you up.   

 

How Does Seeding Change Work?

You pay a one-time Seeding Change program fee (launch price: $339 USD) and get lifetime access to our bundled training courses (videos, projects, assignments, and forums) along with our monthly Skills Development Clinics (virtual) for areas that we consider the secret sauce to your career transformation.

    We’re confident that your learning will stay with you for the long haul, providing you with the adaptive skills that you’ll need to survive and thrive in the coming years.


    Project-Based Learning = Practical Value 

    Projects make your new learning stick by giving you a chance to roll up your sleeves and apply what you’ve learned. As you work on your projects within a collaborative environment, you’ll receive mentor input, coaching and guidance along the way within a safe and supportive learning environment. 


    Earn Points & Badges

    We believe that learning can (and should) be fun! Earn points by completing the lessons and assignments, sharing your project progress, and by voting and offering your input and advice on the progress of others. Top points earners of each course win a private, hour-long telecoaching session with Dee McCrorey (value: $325)!

    One coaching winner will be identified monthly for each course.


    Skills Development Clinics (SDC)

    Our focus is to ensure success for you within your environment—on the job, preparing to onboard in a new environment or looking to re-enter the workplace—and in order to do that we supplement e-course learning and practical projects with regularly scheduled live / recorded Ask Me Anything (AMA) webinars that reinforce the how of applying your new learning.


    The Seeding Change Guarantee

    We take the risk out of your upfront decision by offering you a 30-day guarantee! We’ve been teaching our core course content for decades and have delivered desired results to hundreds of corporate clients and career professionals. But if you discover that our Seeding Change program is not right for you, we will 100% refund the fee to your original form of payment within the first thirty days of purchase. We ask only that you complete a short survey first in helping us to improve the experience.

    About Dee McCrorey

    author-image
    My career spans over thirty years where I’ve specialized in software program management, manufacturing project management, and tech operations before moving into change management a decade ago.

    Seeding Change’s core learning base is what I refer to as the “middle strata” of most large organizations—Program and Project Managers, Change Practitioners, and Mid-Level Leaders—who will continue to manage the brunt of transformational change for organizations, particularly as AI and other advanced technologies take root.

    We’re doing our part to ensure that you’re prepared for a truly disruptive decade. By complementing your existing skills with new capabilities, we’ll help you close skill gaps needed in the next 3-5 years and support you in reinventing yourself for what will certainly be both challenging and exciting times!

    In addition to my change management consultancy and online learning site, I'm making time to write the first of my quartet of memoirs--the first one is about a five year slice of life in the seventies during Silicon Valley’s wild, Wild West days, a bygone manufacturing era when I discovered the true meaning of the dignity of work.
