Change Ready Leadership: Strategies to Create Positive Change in Your Work, Life and Community
Most of us are required to lead change – regardless of our job title. Our staff, clients, and colleagues may think they are ‘change ready,’ yet no one is ready for change that might have a negative impact on them or increase the amount of work they have on their plate! To evolve and be future ready, we need to build these capabilities as there’s no end to the multiple changes that happen at work.
With his experiences leading change initiatives with diverse populations, Gregg guides the audience using insights, relatable stories and solid takeaways with a healthy dose of humour. Audiences will learn ways to break out of status quo change management thinking and discover people-centric approaches that actually work.
• Use a powerful process to get out of problem-based mindset and move into solution-focused thinking to create positive change.
• Identify unique ways to accomplish more when under pressure to perform.
• Discover a simple technique to help team members maintain their productivity during change.
Industry 4.0: Manage Rapid Technological Change
Is your organization ready for Industry 4.0? Technology, economy, and competing in a global marketplace amidst regulatory changes and requirements all create a challenging environment – one that needs us to not only be ‘change ready’ but to also be agile in anticipating the future to predict changes! Consumers expect information quickly, accurately and tend to not like change unless it’s going to really benefit them.
In this keynote, Gregg will explore proven strategies to prepare our leaders, employees, and customers to adapt to the changes we know are going to happen but aren’t necessarily prepared for! Attendees will gain tools and techniques to navigate the rapid pace of technological change and prepare for Industry 4.0 – the next industrial revolution.
Developing Leadership Resilience: Increase Your Effectiveness During Change
In today’s environment, all of us lead change, regardless of our job titles. We know being a change leader is not an easy task! People only have two options when we encounter change. We can be open – or we can be closed. Most change models don’t address how to increase our capacity to handle change – and how to help our teams be open to organizational changes. To evolve in today’s changing environment, we need to build those skills as regular change is the new norm in most organizations.
Without a high Resilience Intelligence (RQ), it can be difficult to stay on top of all the changes, lead our teams and be strategic in our responses. In this interactive, powerful, thought-provoking keynote, attendees will gain a useful and unique perspective on leading change. We will also discuss the critical mindset and skills needed to adapt to change AND to create positive change that they can immediately put to use.
• Strategies for being a positive force in the organization by turning negativity into positivity.
• Practical skills to become more strategic in leading and responding to change.
• Identify momentum building strategies when the team is feeling ‘stuck’.

Organizations face the reality of having to produce more at a faster pace, with increased complexity and uncertainty. To get people on board with proposed changes, leaders require skills to guide staff from their current state to the desired future.
