Leaders have the impression that once organizational changes are made, people will naturally follow. While change may be triggered by external factors, the individual change process is deeply personal and internal, emerging from critical reflection, self-awareness and self-motivation.

Jez Benton, chief executive officer of Canvas Leadership, explores transformative change from a new perspective. Whether he is at the top of a mountain with inspiring leaders who share their “route to the top” or in conference rooms with clients developing change management strategies. Listen to powerful stories of transformational change and the power of aligning personal motivation with organizational strategy.

This interactive session will explore Canvas’s Transformative Learning framework as a condition for managing change. Brought to life through leadership stories, taken from Jez Benton’s podcast featuring CEO’s on their route to the top.
