LEAD Behaviour - Leadership of Organisational Change Special Interest Group Event

We were delighted to hold this Leadership of Organisational Change Special Interest Group event at the Olswang offices in High Holborn on Monday 21st September 2015.

There are many excellent theories and models focusing on leading and managing change. Understandably, leaders and managers themselves are hungry for approaches that can work reliably, and indeed some of the current theories do make useful generalisations about the psychological and organisational impact of change.

But what happens if the complex nature of the change they have to lead does not fit neatly into any model? Change happens in so many complex ways: no two change scenarios are identical. Therefore leaders need to think hard about the exact nature of the change they are dealing with before committing to an approach. They also need to be clear about which specific leadership skills are going to be most needed, and be prepared to work on skills which may come less naturally to them.

Jennifer Bryan has thought deeply about the complexities involved in leadership and change. She has developed the ABChange model, which can help leaders identify the precise nature of the change they are dealing with and the approach and skills that are most likely to be successful in dealing with it. She has also taken a look at what leadership skills may be required in the future. She has published articles with “Coaching at Work” and “iCroner” along with several blogs on client websites and her own website.

In this event Jennifer explored how the ABChange Model could help attendees and/or their clients lead people through their own business change. Jennifer shared the theory and practicalities of the ABChange Model along with case studies in how it has been applied within her own client base.
