A Two Day ‘Tipping Point’ and Change Workshop

  • The ‘Tipping Point’ change model*
  • Current change models and  thinking
  • Lean Sigma and creativity tools


In today’s business environment the ability to change provides a sustainable competitive advantage.  Change initiatives fail because we underestimate the effect that change has on people and that the people can exert on change.  Engaging people is key to delivering the ‘fast’ and sustainable change required to enable people to think differently and go about their daily work in new ways.  Understanding “People Change” provides leaders with the knowledge to help them to understand their own role in leading their teams and project leaders in implementing change.


The course is targeted at;

Business Leaders, Senior Managers, Project Leaders and Managers, Change Agents, Green and Black Belts.  This Two day session is ideal for implementation leaders who want to start to build a good change strategy and support activities into a specific project or team plans.


Learning Outcomes

Through the workshop,

  • Participants will gain an understanding of the change management and leadership competencies required to drive sustainable change within their organisation.
  • Experience the dynamics of change and discover different ways of engaging and leverage the ‘people power’ within an organisation using the internationally recognised interactive computer simulation called the ‘Tipping Point.'
  • Develop a Change Road map to deliver your organisational change.

Cost: Special Pilot cost €250 per person for the two days normal price €495 per person

For more information contact or call 021-4326264



This is a ‘Learn & Do’ workshop* where the course participants or a team can work on their own real live change project.  The ‘Tipping Point’ change model is used.  Ideal for delegates who want to gain a better understanding of change before starting their own initiative. Generic case studies are also used.

*Incorporating the “Tipping Point”



Workshop Content

The Workshop is delivered in two parts:


1. Learn and Practice People Change

  • Explore some theory and models around people change and its importance
  • Learn the ‘levers of change’ and potential pitfalls for implementing new initiatives
  • Delegates apply the ‘Tipping Point’ change methodology to a customised case study, then design their own change strategies and test their effectiveness
  • Examine the ‘top ten’ reasons for implementation failure and with the learning and insights acquired, identify the’ hot spots or risk areas for your change

2. Develop the Change Road map
With coaching and mentoring from the expert facilitators, the delegates now apply their learning and practice using a number of tools and techniques to:

  • Accelerate the pace of change through Active Sponsorship
  • Create engagement through a Common Definition of the Change
  • Ensure Change Readiness by actively surfacing & managing resistance
  • Prioritize Action using an integrated change management & project plan
  • Ensure Return on Investment through Adoption


All delegates are provided with an individual Change Dialogue and Action workbook and a copy of “Creating Contagious Commitment” by Andrea Shapiro, PhD.
