Date: 9 November 2021
Time: 11am - 12pm
Presenter: Mark Wilcox
This is a webinar for leaders who want to lead positive change.
Join us on Tuesday 9th November at 11 am for a free webinar and learn how to get your team to engage positively with change.
It's a challenging time for charity leaders. Today's environment of uncertainty, new working models and threats to funding mean leaders are continuously challenged to rethink their strategies.
Making changes can be complex. Staff at all levels are often resistant to workplace change because it can be perceived as threatening or disruptive. During this 1-hour webinar, you will be challenged to rethink change management by focusing on people first and involving them early in the process.
We will cover:
What needs to happen for people to believe in change
Look at a simple model for exploring change
Envisioning the organisation's future
Implementing the plan
The webinar will draw on cases examples from industry and public sector consulting projects and years of failing fast and adapting to succeed.

The 7 Pillars of Wellness : Creating a Better Normal
Essentials to Excellence Series - practical skills training, advice and guidance on key management topics presented by industry professionals.
Date: 16th November 2021
Time: 2.00pm - 3.00pm
Presenter: Chris O'Rourke
We are in the midst of two macro changes in business – the first, the global shift to remote work and the second, an increasing acknowledgement and challenge of employee wellness and burnout in the workplace. As a result of these changes, organisations and leaders will need to adapt and reinvent across every aspect of their business, from talent to technology to education.
Our speaker, both a globally recognised COO and a Certified Personal Trainer, will demonstrate how an innovative and practical human centered framework that positions social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, and physical wellness can act as a means to navigate this time of change. His approach drives the strategic thinking and planning to drive organizational wellness and focuses on building a better normal, not simply a new one.
