Speakers: Ian Railton and Laura Woodward, Verandern
As Drucker said, “Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast’. Change succeeds or fails on the ability of leaders to ‘show the way’ – to help people through their anxiety and emotion and achieve real cultural change. But are our leaders able to deal with and overcome their own change anxiety?
This session will experience how leaders react to change, the impact this has on others and tips, strategies and techniques for leading successful change.
Whatever the situation and for everyone involved…it’s going to be emotional!
Ian Railton joined the British Army at sixteen and while serving completed ‘A’ levels, Officer training at Sandhurst and muddled through a degree in Engineering. Ian left the Army after 20 years service and joined the NHS, and for 10 years he led transformational change programmes across the North East.
Laura Woodward qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Deloitte, but realised that tax was not for her. Unsure of what to do, she transferred into a Leadership and OD consultancy role in Deloitte – and thankfully loved it! Laura has primarily for the NHS, where she met her colleague Ian.
Believing they could achieve more positive change with their own consultancy, they established Verandern in 2013.
