Leading Change

Research shows that 75% of change initiatives fail. Why? Managing change successfully requires leaders to deal effectively with both the structural side of leading change and the human dynamic of transition

As change agents, we understand that change management will be essential to the future of Universities in the higher education sector.

The leading change program will use evidence-based models to explain the best practice for successful change management.   Research shows 70% of organisational change programs fail to achieve their goals.  Organisations focus on the process of change but fail to engage the workforce in the transition from old ways of working to new ways of working effectively, this causes a myriad of lost productivity, burnout, increased workloads, and ultimately failed change management.

In this short program, we will be focused on understanding the process of change and the effect it has on people and identifying the mechanisms for managing a successful transition to new ways of working.

This program is split into 2 parts.  The first part will be focussed on the personal change journey, equipping you with the tools and strategies to navigate change on an individual level.  Part 2 is focused on organisational change, understanding the role of a leader and the impact change has on the workforce.  We will discuss the practical strategies and tools for effectively managing change with your team, enabling them to take action and feel included in the process.

At the end of this session, you will be equipped with the knowledge and confidence how to take a proactive approach to lead change and manage the transition.
