Change Agent

Manager Acceleration Program

For businesses to succeed in a rapidly changing business world, future-ready leaders are needed.

Businesses need Change Agents. People who are engines of positive change.

Developing your Future Leaders

We’re experiencing a time of radical and constant change.

For businesses/organisations to succeed in a rapidly changing business world, future-ready leaders are needed. There is a need to develop more skilled Change Agents. People who are engines of positive change.

Based upon our extensive observation and research, a major constraint to growth and innovation is a lack of high-potentials being developed into Change Agents. 

The ‘Change Agent’ Manager Acceleration Program focuses on the behaviours and mindsets that are key for driving high-performing teams

Better future Change Agents

The Manager Acceleration Program provides the structure, tools, and support that gives participants' a new perspective and a fresh way of thinking — and keeps them on track to turn their goals into reality. 

What is a Change Agent? The individual that undertakes the task of initiating and managing change in a business is known as a 'Change Agent'. Change Agents can be managers or employees who have the desire, knowledge and skills to focus appropriate time and energy on business effectiveness and improvement.

With the accelerating pace of change, every business needs effective 'Change Agents' - to help implement changes towards improvements and new concepts or ideas - and they achieve this by driving positive energy, and intentionally leading others in a way that fosters well-being and increases business performance.

7 Key Ingredients of the Manager Acceleration Program

Manager Acceleration Program equips leaders — and, in turn equips your business as a whole, to become more 'change-capable.’ We do this by using seven key ingredients which collectively impacts the beliefs, mindset, and behaviours that amplifies people’s ability to adapt to, and lead, in a fast changing world.

1. Learning Agility Assessment – Personal development assessment helps unpack what is limiting any progress to learn and grow. To be at our best, we need to firstly understand what could be a constraint.

2. 9 Impactful Workshops – a space where rich knowledge is delivered and powerful discussions are facilitated. This is where the learning is accelerated leading to deep insights and paradigm shifts. 

3. Pre-Post Workshop Material – 30 mins. To get ready for the learning it is important to prime the mind. Participants may also find the answers to some of the current challenges in the business.

This is where the learning is accelerated leading to deep insights and paradigm.

4. Reflection Sessions with the Sponsor – This opens the door to great discussions – reflective and insightful conversations that would not normally happen. 

5. Business Improvement Project – This moves participants out of the daily operational mindset to explore an improvement opportunity and apply the knowledge and skills that are learnt on the program.

6. Group Coaching – There are 3 Group sessions to build skills and start behavioural changes with the support from their peers. 

7. Presentation Session – at the conclusion of the program participants present their key learnings and an overview of their business improvement project.  Presenting to an audience clearly and confidently is a valuable skill – a skill that is key to being an effective change agent.

Business Improvement Project

Change Agents Increase the Ownership of Change

Only by leading change internally, are we likely to create the necessary ‘authorship’ of the change that really drives ownership.

Individuals who define what the change means for them, and make the necessary improvements to how they work, will fully understand the change and feel responsible for its success – because it is their idea, not an idea imposed by others that they are adopting.

This authorship is driven by intrinsic motivation, the internal fire that drives people to achieve more and to take pride in what they are doing.

By enabling individuals to follow their own ideas, they are implementing change in a way that plays to their strengths, and the element of choice gives them autonomy which is linked to greater levels of happiness and productivity.

Everyone you meet has something valuable to teach you.

Participants not only learn from the workshops, online material, business improvement project and coaching – but they also get the support from other participants on the program.

By sharing their insights online and in the group discussion, they learn how to navigate themselves around challenging issues.

All participants want to learn and by generously sharing ideas and their industry knowledge – everyone gets a real in-depth experience whilst on the program.

It is not often that different industries come together to talk about current and real issues in business.

We encourage participants to share their insights and reflections in the Group Discussions in the Learning Management System.
