Transformational Change… Don’t forget how it feels

In our experience, what factors increase the chances of success when delivering such transformation? What causes such change programmes to fail? And what can HR and OD leaders in Higher Education learn from other organisations across the public and not for profit sectors?

Much of our work within our Leadership and Talent Consulting practice involves working with public and not for profit organisations to support new behaviours and culture change, and to build organisational capability. Based on our work to date and research undertaken over the last two years, Jody Goldsworthy and Barry McNeil present our workshop at the UHR Conference 2019, where they will explore and consider why change fails, how the demands on leaders are changing in Higher Education and introduce workshop delegates to a selection of methodologies and models which, in our experience, help executives lead change. 

Through focusing on the behaviours and emotions that human beings need to process, we will begin to introduce a number of key ways to engage and embrace meaningful change. This includes how to ensure purpose and expectations are clear and, most importantly, that the emotions around change are understood and supported.
