Why change is hard

Course Objectives
This course will introduce participants to the notion that change is not ‘out there’ but is really about changing their mental models which reflect reality. You will discuss dynamic change processes and principles including cognitive, emotional and behavioural factors. Knowledge of this will help participants understand why change is so difficult, and why it is a process which takes time and is necessarily uncomfortable. Although it is based on the best current knowledge about change, the course will take a very practical approach, illustrating the theory through understandable metaphors, and suggesting to participants some tools and strategies they can use to help them deal with change in their own context.

Course length
Allow about three hours

Number and type of delegates
Anywhere between 8-20 would work, with 12 being an optimum number. It is suitable for middle to senior people, as it is relatively demanding intellectually, as well as being of practical use.
