How do you recognize the human roadblocks to change?

Do you find it a challenge to get buy-in during a turnaround? Want to build capability in the team, leave a legacy and create star performers concurrently? As a friend or trusted member of our network, I thought I would let you know that we are re-running the intense C Level executive 2 day event again on 28/29th September 2012. The event is held at the prestigious country house location – Ashridge Business School. This event is being run with the support of and in collaboration with the Turnaround Management Association (TMA) UK. I think it is safe to say, attendees have described this is groundbreaking event; that as well as improving your business skills  – will influence how you can interact much more effectively at work and even your family and friends!


The pioneering intense course was developed by John Webster and Tom Pickering in 2006. For those who do not get involved in the extremes of turnaround, the content provides an excellent foundation to transform your emotional intelligence skills, self awareness and people development capability – the main factors to transform your business effectiveness and management capability. This event is the core of the icebreaker team’s capability to transferring skill, deliver results and leave a successful legacy. Click here for the course overview.


For those who know Tyrone Courtman (Former UK President TMA UK), this is his observation from the last event; “I think it has considerable application to Turnaround scenario’s having now experienced the course first hand.” . Click here for more feedback from participants.

Tom and John very much look forward to seeing you there. The course is led by the former Banking CEO @35, VC, and thought leader John Webster. John is a fervent, energetic leader, CEO of CEOGB and also I am proud to say a staunch supporter and Icebreaker Chairman. Click for video overview by John
