Intermediate workshop for Managers

Helping you manage your team through Change

1-day intermediate workshop: Local and Line Managers who need to deliver change

Effective change and transformation may be initiated centrally in many businesses but it is implemented locally. In regions, units, and teams. Many of which are remote and geographically distributed.

Line Managers and Local Champions are critical to ensuring consistent change throughout the workplace - particularly in a fast-paced change environment. In this action-learning, planning workshop (for groups of 15-20 max.) attendees learn about their critical role in change and develop the skills to motivate their teams through the process with:

  • Access to a proven, globally recognised and research - based framework and tools
  • Expert facilitation, action - learning and coaching to help ensure immediate benefit
  • Fast-paced, experiential working on ‘live’ change challenges
  • Flexible virtual or face-to-face delivery

Initiate local change initiatives right, first time and in a people-centred way

Deploy central, business level changes by developing commitment

Drive continuous improvement and performance change in your area
