‘Can you please just get to the point. In a nutshell…

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 3-hour fast-track sessions that are pithy, pacy and straight to the point.

There are six informative and insightful 3-hour Loose Change Sessions and four of these are coming up in Cairns on November 13 and 20:◊  Handling Hijacks – dealing with disruptive emotions

◊  Cultivating Connectivity – being a more connective leader

◊  Restoring Respect – building more respectful workplaces

◊  Tackling Tough Talks – raising difficult issues confidently

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

The Loose Change Leadership Sessions…

Informative and insightful 3-hour fast-track Sessions in morning or afternoon time-slots.  More detailed outlines on-line and in the program Flyer -- download and register through the 'read more' links below. 



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…


Tues Nov 20 PM



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…


Tues Nov 20 AM 



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…


Wed Nov 13 PM 


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…
