How will Agile Change Coach develop my career?
Achieving behavioural change is a critical success factor for any change initiative. New ways of thinking and doing the work are key to accomplishing the objectives and realising the benefits.
However, behaviour change is complex, because it is re-wiring the brain to respond differently to existing stimuli, and that this re-wiring is a personal choice by all those impacted by change.
Those responsible for change must identify how to influence, motivate and persuade their stakeholders. Key skills which define personal leadership characteristics.
Being able to seamlessly and continuously accept change personally and to lead others to adopt new ways of working generates significant financial, efficiency and effectiveness benefits.
This course addresses the subject in two parts:
- Understand what is behaviour change, what common behaviour changes are expected from transformation programmes including the shift in leadership behaviours from those that have served traditionally organised, hierarchical structures well, to a more agile, flexible set of behaviours that are customer and employee centric.
- Learn how to lead activities and exercises in a mini workshop run for those that must change their behaviours. This part of the course upskills those involved in behaviour change to motivate their stakeholders to change their ways of working.
The course contains lots of techniques, practical guidance, short-cuts, checklists, time management tools and skills for influencing, motivating and persuading yourself and others from an initial idea to the creation of a new way of working.

Who is this course for
This course is relevant for anyone who is taking part in change at work. Change means we have to stop our current routines, habits and behaviours and adopt new ones. This can be difficult and stressful. We are comfortable with how things have always been done, and even if we moan about things sometimes, when we are asked to give them up, we feel a sense of loss.
This course teaches you practical techniques, grounded in psychology and neuroscience, to help build your resilience for coping with change. You will learn things that support you at work but also support you in your home life.
Many people who have attended this course have shared the techniques they learnt with friends and family because they find them so helpful, and we all benefit from a less stressful life.
