This Change Leadership Workshop will focus upon developing the skills, strategies and knowledge to enable you to plan implement, manage and position change as an attractive opportunity. We will ensure that you are able to achieve the goal of change faster to fast forward change initiatives
Change is inevitable
You may be proactive in your approach to change or perhaps you are reacting to an event that has been imposed upon you. The more complex the change, the greater the leadership challenge to coordinate a range of processes from strategy formulation, to defining what needs to change and who will be affected.
Effective change only happens when all of these considerations are balanced and optimized. During this change leadership workshop you will journey through the end to end process of leading the implementation of change initiatives.
A highly interactive and effective change leadership workshop which utilises a range of multimedia, case studies, scorecards and a variety of practical activities designed to simulate realistic business change management scenarios. Self assessment, coaching and personal feedback all provide valuable feedback and reflection opportunities.
