Coaching Power Tools: Immunity to Change – Afternoon Only Workshop

If only wishing to join us for the full day or morning option, please see events page.

ICF NZ Branch is delighted to offer this awesome introduction to two powerful approaches to help individuals and teams overcome resistance to change – to get unstuck and get going.

Event Information


At times, all of us hold ourselves back. We may try hard but making enduring changes in our behaviour at work or at home can be really difficult, even when our careers, health or relationships are at stake. Why is making change that lasts so hard? Harvard University Professor Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey believe they have an answer. Their Immunity to Change (ITC) model has two parts;

  1. A simple but powerful five step strategy to rapidly uncover the real root causes that drive self-defeating behaviors.
  2. A structured progressive approach to targeting the obstacles to make real progress on life’s most important goals.

The ITC is an internationally acclaimed methodology to helping leaders and teams realise more of their professional and personal potential. It’s been successfully used in a range of diverse organisations such as financial, government, and the tech sector.
