Engaging with Change
We know engaging will with change is something to aspire to. But what does this really mean? How does the change theory relate to practice? This taster will signpost some of the theories on how people experience change, and give you the chance to experiment with what that experience can be like in reality...
Who should attend?
This event is for all staff interested in getting to grips with how change happens, and what they can do about it.
- Clarify your role in leading change
- Analyse different approaches to leading change
- Identify appropriate leadership behaviours throughout the change process
- Actively manage resistance to change
The session will start with covering some of the main theories of change (the change curve and change equation for example) which will refresh and/or introduce participants to the theory behind the process of experience change.
The first main part of the session will consist of the "change makers challenge" an exercise undertaken in small groups to help staff work through how people respond to change in practice, and what can be done about it. Warning, role-play ahead!
The second main part will utilise coaching circles, as each participant takes the hot seat and is able to seek advice from their fellow participants.
We will conclude with sharing some reflections on learning from the session, and identifying actions that participants can take back into their daily work.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
Reflect on theories relating to how individuals move through the change process, to experience structured exercises based around exploring how all individuals respond to change, to receive advice from their peers around what we can do about it.
