Event Type: Workshop


Change affects all businesses, so learning how to spot and manage emerging issues is a key skill for all leaders and managers. In this workshop, we guide you through the different types of change, and help you plan an effective response, from continuous improvement techniques to managing innovation.

What’s more, in fast moving industries or companies, understanding how to make continuous improvements can be a real game changer.

In this 4-hour Workshop, the sixth and final* of a six-part “Leadership for Growth” series, written specifically for owners or managers of SME businesses, we look at the sources of change, the impact on key stakeholders and the techniques available to manage it effectively.

During this workshop we cover:

  • The main sources of change within a typical service or manufacturing business
  • Understanding the impact of change on employees
  • Your options for managing change
  • An overview of change management techniques and how to apply them
  • Preparing and engaging your stakeholders for change
  • Future sources of change and how to anticipate their impact

*This ‘stand-alone’ workshop is the sixth of a series of six half-day workshops that will help you to transform the leadership performance of your business.
