The Way Forward: Implementing Successful Change
The most challenging thing a person can do is to change the behaviour of another. With the pace of work constantly outpacing the ability of most managers to influence their staff to change, it is no wonder that 70% of change projects end up in failure and only 5% fully succeed. With Dr John Kotter’s 40 years of research and work in the area of effective organisational change, he is the foremost expert in helping organisations implement successful transformations. Dr Kotter is also the Konosuke Matsushita Professor of Leadership, Emeritus at Harvard Business School. In this keynote, explore an insightful overview and awareness of the journey that leaders need to take to facilitate successful change. Be equipped with useful change management strategies that you can apply immediately at the workplace.
