Regardless of industry, sector or size, all organizations undergo various degrees of change. And the goal is always the same: to drive desired outcomes and results.  

Even with the best plans, intent and process, without the people, the desired results will not be fully realized.  

In this one-day interactive and immersive workshop, we introduce the concept, approaches and tools to support leaders and organizations through the continual process of change.  

After this workshop you will have:

Clarity as a group about the benefits of adopting a continual change process and its impact on results.

A firm understanding of the building blocks for successfully navigating change as a leadership team within your organization.

The ability to recognize, anticipate, prevent and respond to barriers within your organization.

The tools and tactics to prepare for, manage and sustain change, in a consistent and sustained way.

When you invest in change readiness, you avoid:

Customer and employee disengagement.
Lack of adoption of the new process, tool or platform resulting in diminished returns.
Added cost of trying to drive adoption and buy-in after the fact.
The risk of the status quo settling back in after a significant shift or change, resulting in lost momentum and diminished return on investment.

“The one-day workshop with our leadership team gave us a practical and pragmatic change playbook to gain buy-in, manage resistance and increase our odds of success. It also allowed us to work collaboratively, identify and empower our change champions and role model a culture of adaptability and readiness.”

Dean Smith
Head of Operations, Canadian Dental Association.
