This week I am creating a course on change management – reworking old material and adding in new models and different perspectives, because that’s what change is.
I could just roll out the same old day that has been successful in the past. A day I know creates thought provoking moments for delegates, helping them understand why change needs to happen and how to make it as painless and effective for everyone involved.
But I want to look at how I can do it differently. To see if I can change my approach to it and make it more experiential, more impactful and more enjoyable for everyone.
I love creating new content. I love the reading, the learning, the new perspectives that make me change my mind and transform how I look at situations and it makes me a better facilitator. Every time I approach a workshop from this position of freshness, I bring a new sense of awe and enthusiasm for the subject. I can see all the possibilities that each subject can open up to the delegates in the room and their growth and their confidence.
My role is to introduce concepts, theories, models and learning that can help the people in the room discover a little bit more about themselves, their potential and their strengths. It is to help them understand how they can apply them to their life and role in order to grow personally and professionally, to achieve all that they are capable of.
And this is the change I am privileged to see on a regular basis. Those moments of enlightenment when people see how application of knowledge, theories and models changes their habits, their behaviours and ultimately their futures.
I love helping people to understand how to manage change effectively, increasing the number of times that it is achieved positively and proactively.
Change doesn’t have to be painful, frightening or overwhelming. It will be challenging but it can also be positive, beneficial, well communicated and offer opportunities you never even imagined.
