Change just got personal

Are you responsible for leading change? Perhaps you’re tasked with innovating new approaches or products, reducing costs, growing the business or spearheading disruption? Whatever the conditions for change, the biggest task lies with you.

It won’t be easy: just 30% of change programmes work*. Conventional wisdom states that fear makes change compelling – that people move faster with a ‘burning platform’ underneath them. But a body of research has revealed an alternative way to frame change.

Consider an alternative approach: unleash your organisation’s capability and embrace human potential with London Business School’s Leading Change programme.

Rewire your thinking from defensive to opportunistic and from reactive to proactive. Learn to empower and mobilise an entire workforce by turning stress-injected ‘burning platforms’ into strengths-inspired ‘burning ambitions’.

Inspiring change – which is embraced, not prescribed – can’t wait. It’s time to lead change that’s iterative, fast and brave.
