This workshop can be customised and adapted to meet your outcome requirements and faciltated either virtually or face-to-face.
Pre-2020 we used to think we lived and operated in a VUCA world. Turns out that when it came to volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, we were beginners!
Since the pandemic, with the accelerated levels of change coming at us many times a day, the responsibility for making change successful can longer rest only on the shoulders of people within the organisation with “change manager” in their title. They need help. One way to give them that support is by empowering a larger part of the organisation to understand the basics of change and how to navigate it. We call these people change champions (for now). They comprise of a selection of the “early adopters”, empowered with an understanding of change and how to navigate the process.
Practically, organisations cannot afford the time and investment to train large quantities of people in change. This workshop and skill-set, is our proposed solution to quickly and affordably empower a large number of people to show up with the qualities of resilience, courage as well as the skills to support change.
What is a change champion?
Change champions can be anyone. We see them as influential and respected leaders where they work. They do not have to be a part of the management teams or hold a specific job title (but they could). The key requirements for a change champion are seeing what is possible and positively influence colleagues and management as they make their transition to changed roles and processes themselves.
Why do we need champions?The Change Champion is one of the most critical components of the change process. They are the mascot of your change initiative and rally support behind the change to remove roadblocks to achieving ROI. Change Champions are crucial for the growth of a company as they are part of normal teams across an organisation themselves, they can influence their colleagues in a way no external entity can. They can provide their colleagues with high-quality support and have a long-lasting impact on them.
