Change Management is Broken Seminar Review and Workshop Announcement
Change Management is Broken!
This was the subject for a thought provoking breakfast seminar last Friday for a motivated audience of over 60 people at the RACV Club in Melbourne as keen as I am on the subject of organisational change management in the modern organisation.
I was pleased to welcome an eclectic mix of interesting people including Change Leaders, Practitioners and Consultants, Human Resources professionals and Program Managers from many different types of industry backgrounds.
I presented why I believe that today we need to focus on building resilience to change as opposed to managing resistance, and the steps that leaders of change and organisations need to take in order to not only survive, but thrive in a world in which constant change is the new black.
The recognition that people are the key to successful change and without supporting them properly, your efforts will be in vain resonated strongly with the audience and prompted much debate and discussion.
The details behind my thoughts on change management are based on my vast experience of working with everyone from blue chip companies to public sector organisations. I have an inherent interest in people and how if they are developed and supported they will add so much value. My observations are contained within my published posts on my website and there are others coming soon.

Some feedback comments from my seminar:
“Shout out and thank you to Karen Ferris for a wonderful session this morning. It is great to hear from someone who isn’t just talking at you, but providing thought provoking messages along with a tonne of common sense!”
“The presentation was very relevant and insightful. Thank you.”
“Thank you for today’s event. I found it very valuable.”
“Thanks Karen, I really enjoyed it. You sparked some quality conversations at my table.”
“Thanks for today's event, it was truly inspiring, looking forward to the workshop.”
“I really enjoyed the event on Friday - so many topics resonated with where my organisation is at and look forward to your blogs and future events.”
I am excited to announce that mid-April, I will be running an in depth 2-day workshop in Melbourne in which I will cover the key roles we need in organisational change management, how we build resilience to change and the way in which organisational change management needs to adapt to a world in which change is constant, volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
There was a lot of interest in the workshop and many have already registered an expression of interest.
When I open registrations, as an introductory offer, the first five confirmed registrations will receive a 2 for 1 deal, meaning they will be able to bring along a colleague for free! I am keen to help as many people as possible be amazing at successful change management!
