Business change events
Thank you so much for today’s session. It was brilliant! I loved how interactive it was, the group of people was super interesting and it felt a true gift to be part of it.
The workshop was superb – so interesting and useful. A real eye-opener. And the graphics are really clear and helpful.
The Readiness for Change workshop… helped me to clarify what we wanted to achieve and how to explain the plan to others in a concise and meaningful way.
Forthcoming free business change events
The Fairisle labs are a series of free business change events and workshops
All we ask from participants is their feedback on the experience.
Business and organisational change can raise some difficult issues. But it’s always possible to achieve agreement on how to move forward. Even when emotions are running high.
Following on from our popular ‘Disagree brilliantly’ event, this workshop will equip you to analyse situations clearly. We’ll also share the tools and techniques you need to find agreement on even the most difficult issues
The ‘Build consensus’ Lab will be facilitated by our qualified coach and organisational development specialist Philip Ratcliff.

An Agile approach to business change
Delivering business change and organisation development initiatives can be a challenge. So an approach that allows you to flex according to the needs of your organisation, the resources available, or the time required by other activities is invaluable. We’ve found that the Scrum Agile project management framework does exactly this.
The ‘Agile approach to business change’ Lab was facilitated by Fairisle founder Sarah Willcox.
Springing back: fuelling change with energy from resistance
We were delighted to run a session at the University Human Resources Conference 2021 – ‘Refreshing HR’.
The session drew on the lessons learnt from recent engagements with HEIs. We took participants through practical and interactive exercises designed to help identify and understand resistance in its varied forms. We then looked at how to convert the energy from resistance into a fuel for change.
The Fairisle Lab Disagree brilliantly was run by our consultant Sarah Willcox.
Profound and meaningful change nearly always prompts challenging conversations. But disagreement needn’t impede progress with your change.
The techniques we share in this Lab will equip you and your teams to get the most from difficult conversations, by learning to disagree brilliantly.
Peer coaching for change
The Fairisle Lab on Peer coaching for change was run by our qualified coach and organisational development specialist Philip Ratcliff.
Peer Coaching helps leaders and teams to navigate change by drawing on the insight of colleagues and peers.
The approach equips teams to set out ways forward and develop new perspectives on the challenges they’re facing.
Resistance to change
The Fairisle Lab on Resistance to change was run by our consultant Sarah Willcox.
How do you deal with resistance to change amongst your colleagues and stakeholders. Maybe even clients?
Is ‘resistant to change’ simply a label that we put on people who don’t seem to see things the way we do?
Readiness for change
The Fairisle Lab on Readiness for change was run by our qualified coach and organisational development specialist Philip Ratcliff.
The session was designed to get you and your team in the zone to start your change initiative.
The session helped participants to identify the success criteria for the change they wanted to undertake, and assess how ready their teams were to embark on the journey.
