About this workshop
If nothing changed in your life in the next five years, would that be okay with you?
Change is normal and natural - how we respond to change and interact and support others affected by it can make all the difference. In this workshop participants will start by exploring their own attitudes and reactions to change, learn foundational models to broaden their appreciation of the change journey, and gain new tools and strategies for use in an interpersonal and organizational context.
This workshop will include videos for advanced viewing as well as a resource list of recommended readings compiled by the facilitators.
Be aware of their own personal reactions and attitudes toward change;
Gain an understanding of key change models;
Be able to identify and utilize tools and behaviours that support and enhance their personal resiliency in change
Be better able to support others as they navigate changes
This session is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about the natural cycles and impact of change in both a personal and organizational context in order to remain resilient and engaged through the transition.
