1. Individual Change
This module gives you the foundation in what happens in each of us when we are confronted with doing something new. At the end of this module you will be able to look at human reactions from a number of different perspectives, allowing you to understand and deal with some apparently negative reactions. In this first module you will work through these fundamental questions:
- How do people learn? And why does their performance drop? Does everybody learn the same way?
- How does someone become competent at something new?
- What factors influence everybody's reaction to change?
- How does your personality affect how you deal with change?
- Why do people resist change?
- What are the proven strategies for taking someone through a change?
2. Team Change
Building on the first module, Team Change takes you through the vital role of the team. On this module you will develop solutions to these questions:
- Why are teams important during change?
