The one certainty that every leader will have to deal with is change. Yet the irony is that change necessarily involves uncertainty, and as a result is often one of the most complex issues that a leader addresses. In this session, we will look at the process of change – both the change events themselves and the human impacts they bring – and explore how to address both elements of the process to ensure optimal results. We will also examine three principal change styles, and explore how a leader’s own change styles impacts how they lead others through the process of transition. The session will be practical, focused and interactive.
