‘Responding to Revolutionary Change in the Workplace’

October 24th 2019, Dublin

Book today, early bird ticket sales close on 30th September

This year’s conference, Responding to Revolutionary Change in the Workplace, was inspired by round table discussions with HR/L&D professionals, practitioners, and buyers of Mentoring, Coaching and Supervision services. The common concerns centred around the level of change faced in the workplace. Examples included increased mobility and flexible workdays, the impact on staff capabilities, work life balance and overall wellbeing. Each speaker will bring a perspective to bear on these and related themes. As a takeaway, we trust you will gain valuable insights and new thinking on how you can better respond to the revolutionary level of change we are seeing in the workplace.

Speakers themes include:

● Gearing up for Complexity – Unlocking Trapped Mindsets
● How to Expedite Developmental Shifts in Leadership Effectiveness
● The Improvised Conversation – Building your Adaptive Muscle
● Leading Transformational Change

Choice of Three Breakout Sessions:

We will be hosting three breakout session options, to add some diversity to the themes this year. Each bringing a practical lens on a different aspect of practice. Reserve via Eventbrite, as places are limited.
