Managing and Leading Organizational Change

Professor Julie Hodges

Wednesday 7th July 6pm (BST)

We would like to invite our MBA students and MBA alumni to join Professor Julie Hodges as part of our exclusive MBA Webinar Series. 

Leading and managing people through change requires an appreciation of how change affects individuals. No organization can institute change if its employees will not, at the very least, accept the change. No change will work if employees are not involved in the effort, as change is not possible without people changing their behaviours and the way that they work. With so much changing so fast, it’s easier than ever today for people to feel that they are not engaged with the change and they will therefore resist it. Addressing that anxiety is one of today’s greatest leadership challenges. This session will focus on exploring how managers and leaders can engage people with, and guide them through change so that they emerge at the other side of the transformation with their wellbeing intact and benefits achieved that are sustainable. 

Julie is a leading expert on change in organizations, particularly the role and impact of people during transformations. She joined the Business School in 2006. Before entering the academic world Julie worked as a business consultant for over 20 years in several profit and non-profit organizations, including PwC. At PwC Julie was responsible for organizational change and management development in a number of companies include Barclays, Shell, BBC, Lloyds, Reuters. Julie has also worked with Vertex where she set up and led a commercial consultancy team. Her first role was with the British Council where she was the Development Consultancy for East Asia.
