The psychology of helping adults change what they do.

In this practical workshop, hosted by Simon Breakspear, you will explore what psychological research suggests is the best way to respond to the resistance that emerges during an improvement journey.

Anchored in implementation and behavioural science research,  this workshop will provide a clear framework and practical tools to enable you to support deep and sustained changes in the professional practices that matter most.

You will: 

  • examine the challenge of adult behaviour change
  • unpack simple and effective strategies for getting unstuck and building momentum
  • apply practical tools to unlock meaningful progress in the change work you are already committed to.


Designed for principal class members, school leadership teams, and system leaders.
