Tony Lockwood is delighted to be joined on today's show by Peter F Gallagher - a Change Management Global Thought Leader, International Corporate Conference Speaker, Author and Leadership Alignment Coach. Peter connects with Tony on the virtual sofa and shares his experience of delivering transformational change in challenging environments.
Some of the subjects that were discussed:
Internal verses external Big Four consultant and the importance of trust
You can’t do 10 or 20 transformations programmes and deliver normal day-to-day operations
The importance of change leadership alignment
The employee Behaviour Change challenge
Treating employees with respect during a change journey - future ambassadors of the organisation
My four-legged stool
‘Tell’ verses ‘Sell’ change implementation
Change management gamification
Key take away: “I have yet to encounter a successful change implementation without an effective and proactive sponsor, backed by an aligned leadership team”
Peter is the author of five change management books and we explore these along with the change questions set by Peter as he works with leaders and their team to develop the solution;
Do you have a change vision?
Are you aligned on your strategic objectives?
Are you a high performing team?
Does your team have change leadership skills to lead the change or improvement that your organisation is facing?
He then works with the leadership team to develop a solution.
I hope you find this episode informative.
