About The Change Forum
As suggested by our name, our business is Change
We’re an independent change management consultancy in Australia, with a focus on providing change and learning programs that advance leadership capability, build better teams and enrich workplace culture. We’ve a robust track record of more than 25 years designing and facilitating innovative workplace transformation, learning and improvement processes where leadership, organisational learning and culture change are keys to success.
We work with leaders and teams at all organisation levels to help build their leadership and team-working capabilities to work more effectively together, engage with and navigate constructively through change and build vibrant, healthy work cultures that support flexible, high-performing teams.
“When I look back on my many years as a consultant, facilitator and coach, I recognise that so much of what I’ve learned myself comes not just from my own practical experiences, but also, more importantly, from those I’ve worked with who’ve taught me so many valuable lessons about people, life and working well together…”
Hi! Bill Cropper here. I’m founder and principal of The Change Forum, creator and presenter of our programs, change consultant, facilitator, author, speaker and leadership coach. Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find our online learning resources useful and worthwhile. Please get in touch if there’s anything you think we ought to know about or would like to see improved. I’m always very happy to receive constructive feedback…
As a bit of an introduction, I’ve been developing workplace change and learning programs and skilling up leaders and teams for well over 25 years now, and in doing so, have accumulated a wealth of practical experience in areas such as forming and developing teams, leading change, leadership capacity-building, workplace culture renewal, conversational mastery, emotional intelligence and workplace wellbeing. As well as facilitating learning programs and workshops, I regularly coach and mentor leaders too.
My work internally with organisations has provided a wealth of insights that contribute to our learning programs, along with feedback and inputs from our thousands of external workshop participants. I’m particularly interested in the benefits of emotional and social intelligence, mindfulness at work and constructive conversations to create connective and compassionate workplaces, promote productive, open interchanges and facilitate personal growth and change mastery. These have helped to inform our Learning-Centred Leadership, Working Better Together and Executive Team Action Learning in-house programs and also, now, our on-line courses.
Throughout my working life, I’ve been a prolific author of practical, user-friendly toolkits and self-coaching guides that continue to feature in all face-to-face programs we provide. I’m known for having a relaxed, down-to-earth, open style; comprehensive mastery of a wide range of facilitation tools, techniques and processes, and customarily work comfortably with people at all organisation levels – whether senior executives, operational managers, team leaders, outdoor workers or office staff. I hope I bring at least some of this to our on-line presentations too.
