Whether we talk about technology, climate, politics, global demographics, the way we consume or socialise (and the list goes on), the rhetoric is the same: change is now the norm. The pace at which this change is unfolding has also gone up a notch or two in the last two decades. In this reality, some see the opportunities, others are left behind.
What has been key at The Helmsman Project has been our conscious decision to take people on the change journey before it even starts through consultations and collaboration so that we could together paint our future. But despite the size of our organisation, it is still not a small feat.
Being able to inspire, motivate and influence through change is a critical leadership skill that needs constant mastering. To help you (and me) embrace the challenge, we’ll be hosting on 16 October and 20 November two global experts on the topic of change and leadership.
First cab off the rank will be Michelle Etheve, from The Change Lab. She will be sharing insights from the most comprehensive empirical analysis on trends in organisational change. In a conversation with Michelle, she was explaining how their latest research shows it isn’t the pace of change that impacts people (as the popular belief goes), but the leadership approach we take which can impact our people’s wellbeing and willingness to embrace change. She will touch on Appreciative Inquiry as one of the very powerful leadership tools to create change in larger teams and in support of people’s wellbeing.
