Engaging Leaders During Change with Tim Creasey
Phil is joined by change and innovation leader Tim Creasey to discuss how to engage leaders during change.
Leaders have the greatest influence on the success of a change initiative, and without their full support, a project has little chance of succeeding. A leader's lack of visible commitment, reluctance to adopt new behaviours or poor attendance at project review meetings will result in similar actions from their teams. Conversely, an aligned, energized, and fully supportive leader will motivate and galvanize their teams to adopt new ways of working and endure difficult transitions.
So, how do you engage leaders during change to fulfill their roles and ensure people have everything they need to take on new mindsets, routines, and behaviours?

Presenting at a Leadership Review with John Millen
Phil is joined by communication expert and leadership coach John Millen to discuss how to present at a leadership review.
Leaders can make or break the success of a big change initiative. They influence the level of engagement of their teams, make the highest-impact decisions, control the allocation of resources and the ability to overcome barriers.
Agenda, presentation style, data, insights, recommendations, and engagement level all play roles in a successful leadership review presentation.
So, how do you present at a leadership team review, so leaders fulfill their roles to their full potential by making the best decisions that lead to successful transformations?

Earning Trust with Yvonne Ruke Akpoveta
Phil is joined by change strategy and leadership expert Yvonne Ruke Akpoveta to discuss the importance of trust and how to earn it during change.
Trust is the glue of relationships and the foundation of collaboration. Without it, people spend their energy protecting themselves from harm. When meeting someone new or learning about a change, people’s “fight, flight or freeze” response is often triggered, causing them to either defend their territory or hide. Both mindsets add risk to the initiative and slow you down—mistrust is costly.
So, how do you build trust during change so people can focus on being their best instead of watching their backs?

Conveying Insights through Data with John Bradley and Carrie Bradley
Phil is joined by strategic effectiveness experts John Bradley and Carrie Bradley to discuss how to convey insights through data.
Shared understanding is essential during change. People must align on the why, what, when, where, and how of the initiative. Everything must make sense, or doubt, resistance, and risk seep in.
Data is the foundation of knowledge. It is the raw materials of pattern recognition, insights and fact-based decision making.
A challenge is that most people struggle to make sense of data. They think in stories instead of numbers and need context for data within their frames of reference to have meaning. Without personal connections to new concepts, people may become confused and distrustful of your insights and your recommended way forward.
So, how do you convey insights from data so that they are understood, build consensus and lead to positive action?

Engaging Those Who Are Changing with Barbara Trautlein
Phil is joined by change and transformation expert Barbara Trautlein to discuss how to engage those who are changing.
Ultimately, the people impacted by a change decide its level of success. Their mindsets, actions and behaviours either support or reject the new ways of working required to unlock its benefits.
Either they advocate for and take pride in the change, or don't take ownership of it and block adoption.
So, how do you engage people to enable the changes impacting them so they become committed to securing their success and outcomes?

Assessing Risks with Cindy Smith
Phil is joined by change and coaching expert Cindy Smith to discuss the best ways to effectively assess risks in change.
All plans include risks because transition roadmaps are based on assumptions about the future.
Knowing what could go wrong removes the surprise factor and potential knee-jerk reactions when things don’t go as planned. The proactive assessment of risks also demonstrates that you’ve thought through your plan and identified potential blind spots that could jeopardize your success.
So, how do you assess project risks that lead to greater awareness of organizational realities and the development of contingency plans to activate, if needed, which avoid distraction and cost?
