Supporting Leaders to Facilitate Real Change
Two key lessons that Kelcy lives by in her work as a change management consultant and facilitator are:
- you can’t delegate change leadership and
- as a leader, you must be willing to allow yourself to be changed through the process of leading change.
During this engaging meeting conversation she will share with you some of the important processes and tools that she uses as a consultant to support leaders leading change including: why facilitation is critical to engagement and change ownership, how to get out of the cycle of reactive change, and what type of roles and behaviour must you cultivate within your change project and organization to create sustainable change.
