Feb 1 @ 8:15 am - 10:15 am
Michael Astrop from SmartStyle Training will be sharing some of his secrets of changing our thinking on change.
It is estimated that 70% of change initiatives fail to achieve their goals, in this bite size taster session Michael will
examine why that is and propose that we start to think about our change processes in a different way. He will
explore the traditional approaches to change and give a simple formula, with a range of tools, to make future
endeavours easier to implement and be more enduring.
