Actions and Detail Panel
Techniques for Understanding and Anticipating the Impact of Change
Tue 18 July 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Speakers: Liz Staniforth and Phil Allocck
Some organisations manage to evolve seamlessly, but the majority struggle to cope with change because they are weak in one or two key areas. Typically these might be:
* Problems in the relationship between the senior management team and the executive team
* A culture of silo working
* An inertia preventing action, while recognising the need for specific change
* Poor internal communication, relying on "memos" or email
* Unfocused leadership styles
Last October Odyssey Learning and Development and Cofac were delighted to win the Excellence in Change Management category in the abp's 2016 Workforce Experience Awards. This honour was in recognition of the approach we had taken to and the impact of a Leadership Development programme we had facilitated on behalf of St Leger Homes (Doncaster). That approach had at its core Odyssey's unique approach to the facilitation of behaviour change and was greatly enhanced by the use of the Lumina Spark tool. This session is a welcome opportunity for Odyssey and Cofac to share with peers both the approach we took and the lessons we learned.
Liz Staniforth began her career as a front line manager in a large energy business. She subsequently managed their learning and development function before moving into L&D consultancy. That work has seen Liz design, deliver and manage a variety of organisational and leadership development interventions, in a whole range of sectors. Liz has a passion for ensuring that the work translates into real outcomes for clients. She is a particularly effective facilitator of sustained behavioural change.
Phil Allcock is a vastly experienced Learning and Development consultant who has both led L&D consultancies and facilitated a wide variety of organisational and leadership development interventions in the Energy, Financial Services, Local Government, Professional Services, Construction sectors. Phil has a passion for exploring what it takes to enable sustained behavioural change in the “real world” which culminated in his PhD and the co-founding of Odyssey. His current work combines continual development of the Odyssey offer and its application to work with corporate and individual clients.
It is expected that the presentation will last 45 minutes followed by approximately 30 minutes of Q&A and networking will as usual be encouraged at this event.
