Description

SESSION DESCRIPTION:

This session will build participants’ confidence and competence in leading complex change and innovation in the college environment. Joining colleagues from across the province, attendees will apply systems thinking to diagnose their College’s learning and change cultures and, using change frameworks and practical theories, will co-create strategies for successful leadership of change.

This session will also include an impactful and unconventional training experience using evidence-based psychology and improvisational theatre to provide participants with powerful tools to gauge, manage and enhance communication and navigate change at the individual, group and organizational level. Through this process, participants will learn to read others, deepen collaboration and improve conflict resolution.
