Leading Effective Organisational Change in Complex Environments

This is my flagship change leadership workshop and has been attended by business leaders from around the world.

We recognise that all leadership is change leadership.  We also recognise that good change leadership is about moving forward and not being stalled by indecision.

Effective change leaders do 4 things well: They anticipate where business is moving in the future, they envision the changes needed to meet those changes, they make decisions which lead to that future and they create and sustain momentum through effective communication.

Change leaders also develop the skill to know when to be proactive and when to be reactive.

In this workshop, we explore the fundamental, practical skills that effective change leaders master in the complex, ever-changing business environment of the world today.

Leading Change in Human Resources

It’s the people in your organisation who make the biggest difference to the organisation and are therefore your greatest asset. And it is people, not product or service, who are most affected by change, hold change and transformation back and are the biggest positive contributors to change.

Unfortunately, most companies and organisations only bring the human resources team into the change equation after the strategy has been set and the direction of travel has been determined.

This is, however, changing as leadership is being developed withing HR teams and the fastest growing and dynamically changing companies are embracing this challenge.

This challenge is for HR Change Leaders to take a lead in changing themselves, changing the way in which HR functions and lead change by creating and delivering the necessary internal expertise needed to ensure the overall change and transformation is delivered.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • Module 1 – Change Leadership in context and the leadership crisis
  • Module 2 – The new role of an HR department
  • Module 3 – Why HR should be the first to recognise the need for change and the primary lead for change
  • Module 4 – How to identify the needs, opportunities and risks within a complex environment
  • Module 5 – The difference between leading change and managing change in an HR context
  • Module 6 – High Impact Leadership skills and capabilities
  • Module 7 – Developing a mindset for influence and high impact
  • Module 8 – Overcoming the barriers to change in HR and in a complex environment

This course added an incredible amount to my way of thinking, especially strategic thinking and it should be an essential course from all senior managers.
