ChangeChange Workshop

“Navigating Change: An Understandable Approach To Engaging Others”

Based on research into how change actually happens, successful change tends to follow a repeated pattern. Understanding this pattern is vital to knowing how to approach the challenge of change—whether it be organizational or personal change. This pattern rests upon the fundamental insight of appealing to both the rational mind as well as the emotional mind. Much of workplace change is overly dependent on a rational approach. The rational approach is vital however, a change effort can derail unless it is combined with deliberately engaging the emotions of those you most want to influence. It is upon this core insight that this workshop is built.

Participants experience a series of hands-on activities to both increase their understanding and knowledge of the change strategies that engage the rational mind, and also a similar set of strategies to motivate the emotional mind. In this way, the new knowledge introduced in the workshop “comes alive” in a manner that is personally relevant. Through the use of actual workplace challenges faced by workshop participants, they learn about how to use these change strategies in a practical and meaningful manner.
