This workshop takes a whole systems approach to change leadership – looking at the context, the content and the carriers of change. Focus in the workshop is on developing an applied understanding of effective change based on these three critical change variables working in interaction over time. Change leadership is emphasised as the critical factor necessary to achieve emotional connection of organisational members to the change outcomes.
