Coming up next in BRISBANE:

AUG 27-28 ~ Learning to LEAD CHANGE


SEPT 10-11 ~ Personal Mastery: Leading w. EI

In this year of constant and quite significant change, improving our ability to respond, adapt and guide people through it is a priority for all forward-thinking leaders.

At The Change Forum, we believe learning is at the heart of successful change – learning how to lead change and helping others learn how to change by building the conversational, relational, emotional and personal capabilities people need to support them in navigating change with less anxiety, more purpose and more positive energy.

Beginning with our 2-day practical forum on Learning to Lead Change, we have a number of coaching clinics coming up in south-east Queensland which can help you and your team to develop personal change skills, teamworking and leadership capabilities to effectively sustain change while creating a more adaptive and emotionally intelligent workplace culture along the way.

More detailed information on individual events to follow – and detailed brochures available for download at Register on-line or using the brochure registration forms.  Here's a summary of what's coming up next...

Learning to LEAD CHANGE

BRISBANE Aug 27-28... BRISBANE Dec 3-4...

Down-to-earth insights into how to make change work… This down-to-earth, nuts-and-bolts clinic gives a good grounding in practical concepts to effectively initiate, design, plan and lead change – and critical practice areas, crunch-points and steps you need to know about.

“Added value to my learning as a leader going through significant change. Very challenging, well structured with excellent content and activities to compliment learning” Leuwin Ferguson, Queensland Health

“Two very interesting days that challenged some of my ideas and clarified my thinking in relation to managing change strategically. A practical and useful course, very professionally delivered - well done.” Julie Lawler, Dept of Local Government

BRISBANE Sept 3-4... GOLD COAST Nov 5-6...

Easy to apply tools and a process to follow to convert destructive confrontation into constructive conversation... No matter how conversationally competent we are, we all have times when things just don’t go ‘right’ – no matter what efforts we make or conversational strategies we try! Poorly handled or avoided, challenging, confronting or contentious conversations cause so much conflict and stress in workplaces – they're something we could all learn to handle better.  ‘Dealing with Difficult Discussions’ equips you with a robust, step-by-step process to navigate your way through those troublesome moments...

Fabulous learning experience! Anyone who has to deal with difficult discussions should do this course.” Georgina McGrath, Qld Health
“Everyone can benefit from this clinic - regardless of degree of experience... A very positive learning experience in a comfortable, safe environment...” Kim Cree, Rockhampton Regional Council

Personal Mastery: LEADING with EI

BRISBANE Sept 10-11... TOOWOOMBA Nov 17-18...

A 2-day practise-intensive coaching clinic for leaders at all levels ... Your success as a leader has a lot more than you may think to do with your own level of personal mastery and emotional intelligence. How leaders manage their moods and how aware they are of their emotional patterns, profoundly affects work culture, team climate and ultimately, job performance and business success.

“A great learning experience - useful, enjoyable, informative and quite relevant to my life - both work and personal - especially the 7 practices of EI Leaders... well balanced mix of theory, practical and humour in a relaxed atmosphere..." Mickey Polkinghorne, Disability Services Queensland
“The most interesting and relevant training I’ve ever attended. Content and structure excellent - every topic entirely relevant to my work as a manager and my everyday work practice.” Graham Stark, Queensland Health
