CPHR Nova Scotia is pleased to partner with CPHR BC & YK on this learning opportunity.

CPHR CPD hours: 1.5

The pattern is common in life: your goals matter, the commitment is genuine, yet despite knowing what we must do, and wanting to do it, we fail to do it. This presentation, answers why behavior change can be so darn difficult.

A recent medical study showed that, even when cardiologists told seriously at-risk patients that they had to make lifestyle changes if they wanted to continue living, only one in seven patients was able to make the changes stick. One in seven! If death isn’t a sufficient motivation for change, what hope does the average leader have in simply improving at work?

In this presentation, you will learn:

  • Share a synthesis of 30 years of research into why even when we might know what we need to do and commit to doing it, we can remain stuck
  • Share video clips of real people telling their story of learning to see and overcome their (psychological) barriers to improvement - transforming both how they act and how they think
  • Illustrate the 5-step pathway, these regular people followed to overcome their Immunity to Change™ and find greater peace, health and wholeness in the face of disruption, chaos and escalating demands
  • Introduce a jargon-free approach for doing the complex work of Neuroscience, Vertical Development and Habit Change – and how it’s being scaled as a vehicle for leadership development and talent management

Who should attend:

  • Any person, curious about... why they have personally struggled to make the changes and improvements that they genuinely want to make.
  • Senior Human Resources Professional curious about... how to enrich their organization’s existing talent management and people development with methods being used by iconic brands such as Apple and Google.
  • Operational leaders curious about... how they can shift the collective behavior and/or culture to better support the organizational strategies and/or priorities and/or direction.


Alex Wray, President, Wray Consulting Group Inc., founded his leadership development firm in 1993 to grow leadership capacity, transform culture and achieve extraordinary business results. He has served a range of clients from the small entrepreneurial start-ups in the Silicon Valley to the CEO offices of both Motorola and Ford Motor Company. The majority of his experience is in energy, financial, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and professional services. Although his clients are diverse, their perspective is similar: the status quo must change.
Alex believes leadership development is optimal when it is linked to the results that matter most for the client. His expertise is at the level of execution — "where the rubber meets the road.” His passion is about making leadership real as leaders learn to walk-the-talk. Since 2013, Alex’s focus has been on accelerating the rate at which leadership capacity can be grown. It has resulted in programs that bring an innovative blend of executive coaching, group coaching and workshop facilitation. At the core of these corporate programs are the principles of Immunity to Change™. Some of the world’s most iconic brands apply the principles from Immunity to Change™. The principles are from ground-breaking insights of Harvard University Professors Bob Kegan and Lisa Lahey. Alex has worked alongside Kegan and Lahey in serving clients in Europe, Canada and the United States.
Alex has a unique ability to make complex topics relevant. He frames his message in stories of relatable, real life people; perspectives from the science of habit change, and emerging insights from neuroscience.
Alex is part of the faculty of Notre Dame University’s Executive Integral Leadership Program—one of the premier leadership development programs in North America. Alex started teaching executive education in 1996 at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia.
