‘Can you please just get to the point. I haven’t got time for complex, long-winded management theory...’

The Loose Change Leadership Sessions distil some of the most powerful tools and useful practices from The Change Forum's full-length leadership forums into six 3-hour fast-track Sessions that are pithy, pacy and straight to the point:

◊  Handling Hijacks – dealing with disruptive emotions

◊  Cultivating Connectivity – being a more connective leader

◊  Restoring Respect – building more respectful workplaces

◊  Recreating Culture – strategies for leading culture change

◊  Tackling Tough Talks – raising difficult issues confidently

◊  Confronting Change – preparing people for change

Each session comes with its own take-away mini-toolkit and the reduced price-tag is so affordable it’s almost loose change.

To find out which Loose Change Session suits you best, see the outlines below or download the Session Flyer for more detail.

Handling hijacks and dealing with disruptive emotions is critical for leaders at all levels. Toxic workplaces are the by-product of people who can’t handle their hijacks.

This Loose Change Session looks at emotionally intelligent ways to manage moods and cope with caustic characters and toxic workmates.  Read more here…

Connectivity is a basic precondition for anything leaders do. Without it, we can’t influence, inspire, motivate or mobilize. If you want committed action and top performance, you have to connect with people first.

This Loose Change Session explores crucial leadership lessons and practices to cultivate connection. Read more here…

Dates & Time

Thurs Oct 4:


Tues Oct 9:





Rumblings about respect reverberate around workplaces. Along with trust, it’s one of the twin currencies of leadership. Lack of it is a major bugbear for team relationships.

This Loose Change Session looks at what respect is, dynamics of disrespect and positive steps to take to restore respect in team cultures.  Read more here…

Tough Talks

Many leaders are reluctant to tackle tough talks and give hard feedback. Starting is often the most stressful part. What we say to start determines the entire direction the discussion takes from there.

This Loose Change Session concentrates on starting a difficult discussion and raising tough topics in ways that are neutral, frank, fact-based and less defensiveness-raising. Read more here…

Dates & Time

Tues Oct 9:


Wed Oct 3:





Change can be confronting. Many change efforts neglect the people side. Whatever the change, people need leaders to help them prepare for and cope with it constructively.

This Loose Change Session looks at what you can do to prepare then lead people through change - to convert anxiety, denial and resistance into constructive change energy.  Read more here…

Dates & Time

Wed Oct 10:


Fri Oct 5:





Culture impacts strategy, performance and behaviour. Leaders are acutely aware how constructive cultures generate positive performance energy and destructive ones drain it.

This Loose Change Session looks at what makes up culture, what works in recreating it and trick and traps in leading culture change. Read more here…
