300 managers were asked to identify their greatest leadership challenge and there was one that stood out above all others: How to Lead Change.

The Change Equation helps organisations find the company-specific change leadership approach that best fits your specific culture. It won’t guarantee your leaders success on every project, but it will give them an edge. And if they are already competent leaders, an extra edge is probably all they need.


This breakfast event will discuss three key factors about a company's DNA that leaders should understand:

The Culture Quadrant describing your culture's change preferences

The Key Leader Behaviours associated with successful change in your organisation

The Right time and Right order to enact those behaviours
