Skilled with Sponsors Workshop
As a Change Practitioner you’ve been told that great Sponsorship is the key to Organisational Change success, but that is so much easier to say than to do right?
Sometimes you’ll have no choice in who your Sponsor is, sometimes there’s no Sponsor to be found!! Other times it seems the person nominated for the task might not have been the right choice.
And once you have a Sponsor in place, do they understand their role?
The role of the Sponsor is a vital one, but it can also be the most highly misunderstood, and the most difficult to establish. And the relationship with your Sponsor can be the most challenging for the Change Practitioner to build and manage.
You’re not alone in finding the world of Sponsorship tough to navigate and succeed in. But there are plenty of great tools, tips, tricks and trade secrets that have been the product of hard won experience that can help make this task a whole lot easier.
The Skilled with Sponsors Workshop shares over 30 years’ of professional knowledge and experience in dealing directly with Sponsors at all levels of the organisation, to provide insight and guidance on the best ways to engage and enact sponsorship in Organisational Change.
From bringing a Sponsor onboard, defining their role and connecting with their authentic self, to tackling the awkward conversations around the need to replace a Sponsor – the workshop explores the challenges and benefits of this relationship to help you become skilled at working with your Sponsors.
Inside the workshop
The Skilled with Sponsors Workshop has been designed to support Change Practitioners in establishing, managing and maintaining relationships with Change Sponsors. With more than 3 hours of content, no matter what stage of career you are at, if you are working with Sponsors in your organisational change, then this course is going to answer the most common questions asked, as well as some of the curly ones!
The workshop covers topics such as:
- What’s a Sponsor for? – looking at the research, models and frameworks
- Starting off in Sponsorship – selection and assessment
- Getting on the Same Page – the must-do activity that everyone neglects
- Sponsoring with Integrity – forget one size fits all
- This Just Isn’t Working – have that chat with your Sponsor
- Managing and Maintaining – that Sponsor needs support to grow!
This workshop is packed with content to prepare you to take on the challenge of working with and supporting Sponsors, and you can also access the support of our workshop facilitators at any time during your self-paced workshop if you want to tap into their expert coaching services.
The Skilled with Sponsors Workshop is delivered in a fully online, self-paced format which can be accessed 24 hours, 7 days a week, at your convenience (On Demand workshop). It is also offered in a face to face virtual format (our Live workshop), so please ensure you select the type of learning option that works best for you when making your booking.

Leigh shared her wisdom of over 20 years experience. If you are new to change, or thinking about best of breed practices in the change space, I would highly recommend giving Leigh a call.
