Leading Transformation (Change Resilience)

Neil Dempster will wow your audience!No one in your organization is immune to the influences of a changing, and often challenging, workplace. And success, however it is defined for a specific individual/workgroup, can be somewhat elusive.


But what conditions must be in place to create and sustain a culture that is change-embracing, resilient and made up of people who easily adapt to the many changes necessary to take an organization into the future? At the risk of over-simplification, the answer to this question will always start (and finish!) with leadership ... and that means anyone in your organization who influences how employees think about change.


Why are we calling this program Leading Transformation and not Leading Change? Because our concern shouldn't be about whether employees will change or not. People are changing all the time. What we need to be concerned about is whether people will transform and be ready for the future.

Target Audience

Being change resilient is no longer an option in today's organizations. Many people influence how employees think about—and embrace—change, so access to this workshop should not be limited to just direct supervisors. This 'expanded' target audience should include:

  • Front-line and middle managers
  • Management candidates
  • Coaches and mentors
  • High-potential employees
  • HR and training department representatives

Key Learning Objectives

Learning objectives specify the new knowledge, skills/abilities and attitudes that a learner should have assimilated during a learning experience. Although the actual competencies incorporated in this workshop will be determined during the initial needs assessment with your organization, here are the foundational learning objectives for this workshop.

  • Understand the ‘people' elements of the change/transformation process
  • Develop a day-to-day system for our own self-management of change
  • Understand the process to develop a change-embracing work environment
  • Know how to create self-sustaining change


Adult learning principles are utilized to encourage direct participation and interaction, unleash creativity, open minds to possibility-thinking—and maximize the learning. This workshop includes:

  • Multi-media presentations (e.g., projected slides, short video segments, etc.) to introduce topics and provide key foundational information
  • Experiential learning exercises to allow participants to make an intellectual and emotional connection to the concept of change/transformation
  • Stimulating and interactive discussions to share thoughts, ideas and experiences
  • Individual and small-group breakout sessions
  • An implementation timeline and summary exercise (includes facilitated discussion of potential obstacles to implementation)


This one-day workshop includes over 7 hours of instructional material and is delivered in-house only (no public offerings). The maximum class size is limited to 32 participants.

Customization Options

  • This workshop can be customized to accommodate your organization's specific training curricula, business/industry terminology and can be tailored to build upon previous training programs.
  • A unique customization option for this workshop is embedding short video interviews with your senior leadership team into the program to enhance the learning and reinforce the importance of the message. Interviews can be pre-scripted or free-form and focus on the leader's view of the importance of being change-embracing.
