Change Leadership Group
Webinar – Overcoming the stakeholder barrier when leading projects remotely
Purpose and key takeaways
Under ‘normal’ circumstances, engaging stakeholders is a key challenge when delivering projects. Leaders are required to manage their teams through the change process, keep their business on track whilst also experiencing their own personal change. In normal times, we expect leaders to manage their teams through the change process as well as keeping their business on track and experiencing their personal change. How much more difficult is it with these current business conditions and with our opportunities for authentic face-to-face engagement virtually eliminated. Yet the imperative remains.
The presenters would like to open a discussion on innovative options available to program managers and change managers and demonstrate the jTask Pulse Change Management cloud-based tool which is supporting effective stakeholder engagement across a range of global implementations where personal interaction is highly restricted.

Change Leadership Group
The Change Leadership Group is a collaboration of thought leaders within the Australian Project Services Domain. The purpose of the group is to share learnings, experiences and knowledge to ‘Help Talent Achieve’. This is the first event of the series which is exclusive and invite only.
We are very fortunate to have one of Australia’s Leading Change Management Consultants to be running this interactive workshop for us on ‘Is there ever ANY value in Change Management programs?
This interactive session will allow participants to;
- understand that without a degree of behaviour change at all levels of the organisation, projects are unlikely to deliver successful, sustainable outcomes
- gain insights into their personal style and how effective that might (or might not be) be in influencing stakeholders
- take away a model and approach which they can use to be more successful on their projects
- critique practitioners who are promoting the standard mechanistic approach to change management
