Adaptability (English)

This workshop explains how to overcome the fear of change and drive organisational growth.

Today, businesses – and their people – have to learn continually: responding to change and innovation by staying agile. Business models can suddenly become outdated, and part of the work we do now, might be done by new technological innovations in just a few years time. The only real answer we can personally have, is to adapt. 

Adaptive employees have overcome the fear of change and are generally optimistic about outcomes of organisational change. They are open to what organisational change might bring and thus open to suggestions of colleagues and managers. They feel comfortable in changing and unpredictable environments and actively contribute to the implementation of change. How do you develop this flexibility? And how far should you go? 

In this session, we will:

• Discuss why we often fear change and how we can come to fear it less
• Practise techniques for cultivating an open mind towards change and new strategies for implementing it
• Learn imaginative techniques for developing new ideas, rather than relying on old paradigms
• Learn methods for coping with uncertainty and setbacks and for embracing improvisation, uncertainty and growth
