Lead change. It's not enough to just manage it.
Organisations have never had a greater need for leaders who embrace change themselves, and who have the right mindset, skills, and capabilities to get others onboard with important change initiatives.
McKinsey reports that 70% of change programs fail to achieve their goals, largely due to employee resistance and lack of management support.
Success today is about more than simply managing change; it is about leading teams that welcome chances to incubate, implement, and propagate change.
Only 1 in 4 agree that their organisation is good at handling change. Is yours?
A 2020 survey of more than 6,500 employees found that only 25% strongly agree that their organisation is good at handling change.

Change is a Constant.
The world is changing at an unprecedented pace; nothing is static, certain, or predictable. Businesses are no longer implementing change so much as they are living it.
Developing Leadership Agility.
To enable ongoing, productive change, leaders need to be skilled in aligning people, information, and purpose.
That alignment begins with the organisation’s purpose. More than 80% of executives agree, believing a business’ transformation efforts will have greater success if integrated with its purpose.
When purpose serves as the lens through which employees view change, the “whys” for change become obvious: fulfilling that purpose in better and more efficient ways.
Interpersonal Skills for Change.
Even when the case and plans for change are clear, the speed and mechanics of change adoption can be sped up or slowed down by human factors, which are heavily influenced by leaders’ interpersonal skills.
The key factor is psychological safety, which refers to people’s perception of the consequences of taking interpersonal risks such as asking questions, raising ideas or challenging the status quo.
We deliver training and development in leadership and interpersonal skills for teams and individuals to help you truly realise the benefit of changes in strategy, structure, systems, processes or technology.
