Workshop Description

In today’s environment, Singapore schools have accepted that change is a constant, and critical for long-term survival and growth. Many, however, desire to manage change better, with engaged teams and accelerated results.  This might be especially important to school leaders, who are in a profession to nurture the next generation for our society, and mentor passionate educationists’ whose careers are being disrupted constantly.

  • How do school leaders develop the strategies and processes that will bring about effective transformation and meaningful transition for their schools?
  • How can we motivate our Key Personnel, Teachers and Administrators to embrace change continuously?
  • How can we carefully balance delivering results while engaging our people, and pacing ourselves?


Facilitated by experienced change consultant, Mirimba Giam, the workshop will focus primarily on facilitating School Leaders in these new areas.

  • Review relevant global research on Change Management, and learn to lead in tension between soft aspects and hard side of KPIs for measurable results
  • Discover Singapore schools’ pragmatic approaches to Change Management
  • Learn to design the Change Management processes, framing it as transformation efforts that build on previous change initiatives
  • Hone persuasion methods to engage various stakeholders’ responses to change, especially middle managers
  • Overcome resistance and the lack of motivation to change, especially the going is good in school
  • Discover how to grow ‘agents of change’ among colleagues on the side-lines
  • Be a role model of a leader ready to face vulnerabilities while still energised in leading change
