Business meeting smiling people

There is nothing permanent except change. But leading change programmes can be challenging. As a leader, how can you make sure that your transformation goals are successful?

This workshop, which draws upon the British Council’s experience of delivering global change programmes, will help you to lead more effectively during periods of change. You will learn more about your own reactions to change and how to support, communicate with and engage your team though the transition period.

Who should attend?

Leaders and managers who need to implement change programmes at work.
