1 DAY WORKSHOP: Building organisational capacity to manage the change and stress of the NDIS (Ballarat)

March 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

| 150member/non-member - 300member/non-member

The most valuable part of this workshop was…
…reflecting where I have been and where I am now in terms of stress levels and therefore how that affected my behaviours.
…the opportunity to gain information about stress
…learning about the mechanics of stress and strategies were very helpful.
…activities for us to do around our own stress/thinking that we could then replicate with our staff
…networking. Understanding my own stressors. Documenting them. I feel clearer on my triggers
I am very keen to do more work with Nigel and hope to have my team also be “Nigel’d”
Thank you. It is wonderful to be offered this training I feel very supported by ECIA and colleagues.

Discover how this strategic approach to sustainable organisational change works through building a culture that is mature, open, resilient, flexible and authentic.

Change from the inside out – the myths and limits to changing the way people think.
Culture is contagious – understand how the cumulative effect of small shifts in the way people behave has large shift in the way the organisation operates.
How to build a virtuous cycle towards Authentically Happier staff and why this makes such a massive and direct difference to productivity.
You will experience the benefits of this innovative approach first hand through a workshop on fundamental aspects of personal leadership. With guidance on how to extend these concepts deeper into your organisation.

This is a proven approach that is working well for organisations already operating in the NDIS in NSW, ACT & Victoria.

Attendees will come away with an understanding of:

  • what’s involved in this new paradigm approach in supporting their people to cope with change
    the critical success factors
  • how to sustain these positive changes and build an environment in which people respond positively and openly to change
  • “Should be compulsory for all leaders going into the NDIS.” Alex McConnell, Operations Manager, Tardiss

“Engaging Nigel was one of the three most important actions we took to successfully transition to the NDIS.” Darleen Taylor, GM FirstChance


Nigel, a highly sought after personal leadership executive coach, teaches the process for changing behaviours in individuals and organisations. He then guides them to achieve lasting change.

As the Deputy Chair of Leapfrog Ability (Newcastle), Nigel has first-hand experience at leading the strategic changes required with the NDIS since its inception.  Nigel has driven the cultural transformation project for FirstChance (Early Childhood Intervention specialist in Newcastle), and is current supporting other NDIS providers in Qld, Victoria and the ACT.

His unique approach, expertise and playful, light hearted manner are a powerful combination. People grow to become more pragmatic, to problem solve, to work more productively with others and communicate effectively.  Put simply, they become more open, flexible and authentic; able to respond to change and thrive.
