We know from experience that changing organisation behaviour is hard to achieve. Around 75% of organisational change programmes fail because attitudes and behaviours remain the same.

Learning from your own and other people’s experience, you will gain insights into the ways your thinking and behaviour impact on people and organisation performance. The programme will enable you to become an agent of change by moving from a power to a service model of leadership. It will guide you in ways of empowering your team to contribute more and make change effective.
