One of the challenges of organisation change is the impact it can have on people. Naïve reliance on change processes and techniques does not address this.

However emotionally intelligent behaviour on the part of those leading the change can develop people’s resilience – and make organisational change a whole lot easier.  Such resilience can help sustain organisational performance through ongoing change, and reduce unnecessary resistance.

Based on his leadership work with business teams around the world, Richard Smith will introduce a behavioural approach to emotional intelligence.  He will share a practical framework that can enable change managers to develop a growing repertoire of effective influencing behaviours, which they can use to engage others. 

Moving from the outer world of behaviour to the inner world of mental toughness, business psychologist Ian Price will then help us understand how to use emotional intelligence to build change resilience and mental toughness in ourselves and others.  Ian’s professional work has focused on developing resilience and mental toughness in a variety of business settings.  He will discuss how change managers can apply key findings from psychology and brain science as they engage and support people through change.

This practical seminar/workshop will help change managers who need to build and maintain organisational capacity for, and resilience to, continuous change.
