Change Leadership

In today’s environment, change is happening at speed and yet involves greater complexity. Leaders are expected to be incredibly responsive to emerging opportunities and at the same time consider more diverse stakeholder perspectives in every decision. 

Change leadership is a must have capability of senior leaders requiring them to be courageous and forward thinking while at the same time authentically supporting people transition to a new way of working.  

Join David Romano, Director, Pique Global, who has a passion for developing senior leaders and their teams, as well as your peers in General Manager and Director roles, to explore this important concept.

This session has been carefully curated to make it real for you, our sectors General Managers and Directors. Connect with others who are also navigating change challenges and explore ideas, tools and tips to look at change leadership differently, whilst strengthening your connections and building a support network with peers. Explore how through change leadership you can prepare yourself and your team for complex change and new ways of working and operating.
