Leading Successful Change
Nothing determines business success or failure more than leadership but getting this right during such changing times is a challenge.
Navigating this pivotal role can feel like being adrift in treacherous waters (or beginning to sink) as we plan ahead. This is particularly true now with the changing way of work, shaped by the coronavirus. Employee engagement will dictate outcomes as your workforce decides for themselves whether they are on board your ship or in a different place that will potentially sabotage your future.
Understanding the predictable and sequential stages of change that we all go through, and knowing how to support your people with the emotional journey, makes all the difference. When you can anticipate the resistance and know how to overcome it, you’ll be sailing along!
Change is more than just getting from A to B. We need to be clear about what how we’re adapting, why and what we’re working towards, but also to be clear about how to increase the motivation and commitment of your staff.
Amanda Page and I are combining our expertise of psychology, coaching and change to support leaders to accelerate change in their organisation. In this online event, we introduced leaders to the fundamentals for getting change right, by starting with the people.
