Engage Coaching

Engage Coaching

Are your people ready for change?  It’s a tricky area for organisations as most change initiatives fail.

The Engage online diagnostic overcomes this problem. In just 15 minutes you can assess an individual’s readiness for change and what might be holding them back.

Engage focuses on the people aspect of change and organisational performance. With it you can assess change readiness, diagnose accelerators and blockers, define appropriate interventions, implement robust approaches and measure effectiveness over time.
