Event details

This two day residential programme introduces you to a structured way of approaching organizational change and is ideal for you if you are a senior leader with an organizational change challenge that you would like to explore.


As anyone who has attempted it will know, leading change in organisations is fraught with difficulty. “Organisational change would be so much easier, if it didn’t involve people!” But it does, so  leaders need to approach organisational change with the entire “system” in mind. 

In this two-day residential programme, the participants will experience a structured and systemic way of illuminating the issues they are facing as they bring about organisational change and use practical tools to explore how these issues can be addressed. The participants will look at change from other people’s perspective, understand how they may be unconsciously influencing the process of change, explore people’s resistance to change, and develop prioritised actions to enable change.

The programme is ideal for senior leaders facing a period of significant organisational change, who would value the opportunity to have time and space to reflect on the challenges therein, with support from the speaker and fellow participants. The programme is delivered in an engaging and entertaining way and the delegates will be invited to participate in “systemic experiments” to illustrate some of the change challenges that other delegates bring to the programme.
