About This Class
Change is something that excites people who love opportunities for growth, to see
and learn about new things, or who like to shift the status quo. Some changes, however,
are harder to adjust to and lead to expressions of resistance and anger. We can take
concrete steps to make change more palatable by understanding people’s hesitation,
enlisting the help of others, setting up plans, and managing stressors. These steps
can also ensure that desired changes are implemented successfully.
In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to manage and cope with change and how
to help those around you, too.
Upon successful completion of the training the student will be able to:
- Accept there are no normal or abnormal ways of reacting to change, but that we must
start from where we are.
- See change not as something to be feared and resisted but as an essential element
of the world to be accepted.
- Understand that adapting to change is not technical but attitudinal. Change is not
an intellectual issue but one that strikes at who you are.
- Recognize that before we can embrace the way things will be, we may go through a process
of grieving, and of letting go of the way things used to be.
- See change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation.
- Identify strategies for helping change to be accepted and implemented in the workplace
