About this Speaker Keynote:
In this keynote Peter speaks about change leadership alignment:
The change question set all leaders should be able to answer
"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?"
The keynote is based on Peter's book: Change Management Sponsorship - Leadership of Change Volume 7
About this Book:
Sponsorship is the single most important factor in change success, but very few leaders understand why it is so important, who should be the sponsor or what the main responsibilities of a change sponsor include. It is important because without a proactive and effective change sponsor, most change programmes or initiatives will fail achieve the targeted objectives. The leaders of organisations typically associate the role and traits of a change sponsor with those of a change leader. However, while these leadership traits are important foundations, the role of the sponsor goes beyond the role of a change leader.
Leadership of Change® Volume 7 is a change management sponsorship book that outlines the three key responsibilities of the change sponsor if they want to achieve the targeted objectives and successfully implement organisational change. This book outlines the three critical change sponsorship responsibilities, structured on the a2B3S© Change Sponsorship Model: ‘Say’, ‘Support’ and ‘Sustain’ to ensure full employee change adoption, and sustainable change that improves overall organisation performance. Change implementation is also supported by the a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®).
"Change leadership requires a different set of skills than leading normal day-to-day operations, this capability must be developed before leading organisational change" ~ Peter F Gallagher
