Due to the high demand for the Leading Change Workshop that initially took place last April, Vigor Events – with the cooperation of ALGAS Events and Global Innovation Company – re-organized the interactive two-day workshop one more time in Kuwait on the 1st – 2nd of September 2014.
The Leading Change Workshop is an intensive 8-steps program based on the unique best-selling book “Our Iceberg is Melting” by Harvard Professor John P. Kotter. “Our Iceberg is Melting” is a simple fable with profound lessons for working and living in an ever changing world. The workshop addresses the fact that, only by improving their ability to change, organizations can increase their chances of success, both today and in the future.
The facilitated workshop was designed for leaders in all organizations who are facing the challenge of implementing change. Based on years of research from some of the world’s foremost thought-leaders, Leading ChangeTM takes a refreshingly simple but highly effective look at the challenges change presents. Delegates learnt a process for leading the change journey using the 8-Step leading to change developed by John Kotter through activities and exercises linked to the story of penguins on a melting iceberg as well as relating the steps to change in the delegates’ own organizations.
The workshop left the attendees with a firm understanding of methods to adapt their own leadership style in the context of change which assisted them to identify principles and strategies for leading the emotional side of change as well, use a process and toolkit for leading the change process, and create a personal & business action plan for a current or future change they are responsible for.
