Next Sessions

Leading change is complex—evident in the fact that 80 percent of all change initiatives fail. So what gets in the way? While you can develop new structures to support change, you also need to work with collective mindsets and be flexible and responsive to change.

This highly experiential program is an immersive learning experience that will shift the way you view opportunities, challenges and issues. You will analyse how you engage and react with others, the dynamics of change and how to influence change at your workplace.

By exploring the emotional and psychological processes on an individual and collective level, you will enhance your ability to manage and lead change successfully.

"This program had a profound effect on both my personal and workplace behaviour. It heightened my awareness of group dynamics and the role of both myself and others in a change process."

Matt Williams
Program Director | Leading Transformational Change

Matt joined Melbourne Business School in 2008 after returning to Australia from the United Kingdom. His approach to change leadership centres on process-driven methods; working with groups in the ‘here-and-now’ to better understand the dynamics of organisations, and encouraging leaders to be more agile and innovative in their practice. This approach creates the space for people to better understand their responses to one another and recognise different perspectives to help them make sense of organisational life in an increasingly turbulent environment.
