In-Person: 9 February, 9.00 – 16.00 (followed by dinner) and 10 February, 8.30 – 13.30 / Online: 9 February, 14.00 – 15.00

As organisations continue to shift and reinvent their business models, how can changing behaviour unlock future capabilities? How critical is behavioural change in successfully reacting to and pre-empting market challenges and complexity? Which strategies and tools are effective at enabling change?

Join us for this two-day immersive workshop to explore the science behind behaviour change and discover HR’s role in creating the conditions for change. At the individual level, we will consider how to facilitate and support individuals to sustain new behaviours. At the organisational level, we will consider how to use the tools of behaviour change to shift cultures and create psychological safety.

Summary notes, together with original research, will be published after the workshop.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the science behind behaviour change and the conditions needed for it to be successful
  • Experiment with change tools and strategies and learn from peers about applying them in practice
  • Learn how to design and apply experiments to improve the practice of change in your organisation

Who is this Event for?

HR Leaders who are responsible for enabling and driving change within their organisations.
