Change and Me

Change and me

Building personal resources for change

Managing change is a core competence in contemporary organisations and this programme is designed to support staff and managers during periods of change and uncertainty. While much has been written about how to lead and shape change processes, there is relatively little support for individuals going through change in an organisation. =mc has created Change & Me to address exactly that issue.

The day enables participants to explore and better understand their – and other people’s – responses to change, and to use tools and approaches to deal with change proactively. They are introduced to a variety of practical techniques on how to take more control for themselves in change and how to support colleagues. We cover issues such as changing mindsets and skillsets, building personal resilience, co-coaching colleagues, developing positive ‘anchors’, and the role of Emotional Intelligence (EI) in handling change.

Who is the programme for?

This intensive one-day programme is for individuals who are approaching a change within their organisation or who are currently going through changes. It is also very useful for managers who are responsible for supporting others during change.

  • “Good structure, varied concepts and useful tools. The programme’s strong leadership focus was incredibly useful. I’d definitely recommend this course.”

    Nick Greenwood, Head of Human Resources, IIED

  • “I have always been impressed with both the input from =mc and the impact it’s had on our business. Following the presentation workshop, for instance, we went on to win a number of major contracts.”

    John Jolly, CEO, Blenheim CDP

Outcomes for you and your organisation

The day will be tailored to fit your specific needs. The outcomes will vary slightly depending on whether we are working with staff or managers, but here are some examples of what you can expect:

  • understand the behaviours, attitudes and strategies to manage change effectively
  • understand different types of change within a working environment
  • identify what is important to them at work and analyse the impact of change on these
  • identify their own triggers and reactions, and how to manage these well
  • know what motivates them at work and how to tap into that motivation during periods of change
  • use effective communication to support themselves and others
  • know how to promote creativity within their organisation and to therefore contribute to change processes
  • consider how to support people they work with during change

Learning approaches

The day uses a range of learning approaches including:

  • peer coaching
  • self assessment and reflection
  • small group work
  • action planning
