Change is not a one-time event, but rather a process of learning and adapting that needs to be meticulously managed.
In this interactive The Language of Leadership: finding your own voice programme module we will be looking at your role as a change agent, taking the strategic overview, articulating the vision, and creating a momentum for change.
At the same time you need to provide a focus for stability, so as always we’ll be thinking about your communication as a leader, liaising with stakeholders outside your department and keeping the communication channels open with your team.
Change can sometimes create feelings of anxiety and helplessness – we will be looking at how you can provide support for the team, and how they can support you, so that together you develop a long-term ability to be proactive in the change process, able to evolve and engage with continuous learning and improvement.
