This workshop is aimed at first line managers and change champions and can form part of a wider change programme. Successful change efforts require engagement so understanding how people react when things are uncertain is critical. This module explores the dynamics and the human response to change, equipping participants to be 'change-ready' in the future.


With change now business-as-usual, employees need to master their own response to change to be able to continually adapt and grow in line with demands of change and disruption. This takes resilience, curiosity and and understanding of the process and motivation for change.

How We Do It

Investing in employee development has proven to not only improve performance, but also to improve retention as employees expect and seek out employers who will provide personal and professional development.

Future Skills workshops are designed to stretch and grow skills AND attributes, recognising that everyone is on their own individual development journey. We use a range of approaches to respond to the various adult development stages that people operate at. The content and activities are rooted in experiential learning which has been proven over 30 years of working with organisations to unlock the self-awareness needed.

Our approach incorporates multiple dimensions which results in longer lasting impact - continuous growth far beyond any programme we deliver.


Increasing self-awareness to self-lead and build better collaborative working relationships by unlocking authentic and best self.


Developing critical skills improves performance: communication, problem-solving, strategic and critical thinking, decision-making and leading high performing teams.


Developing systems awareness and strategic thinking to be able to drive growth in line with the organisation's purpose and future vision.


Developing an awareness of external factors which impact on organisational performance and how to build teams and cultures to thrive in complexity.
