More About the Workshop
In this two-hour session, we will
• Discuss why we often fear change and how we can come to fear it less.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
Adaptive employees have overcome the fear of change and are generally optimistic about outcomes of organisational change. They feel comfortable in changing and unpredictable environments and actively contribute to the implementation of change.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
Employees with a lack of adaptability instinctively show active or passive resistance to organisational change or feel paralysed and anxious when their working environment changes. Even in new teams they prefer sticking to old habits and consider organisational change more as a threat than an opportunity.
“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” — Stephen Hawking
‘I learned that adaptability is thriving in change- not coping with it’
‘A useful toolkit to deal with personal challenges in adopting change and coping with it’
