West Thames College London

Coping with Change

Outline (1/2 day session)

Change is a fundamental fact of life – not just at work, but in all aspects of what you do. Some changes we can control, others just influence, and yet others we can do nothing about. So how can we cope with these, move on from them and not become destructive or cynical?

You will learn how people react differently, how you can overcome resistance in yourself or colleagues, turn ‘distress’ into a positive, and how you can build up your resilience, your ability to cope.

Who should attend?

Anyone faced with change.

How will you benefit?

You will understand how people react to change, why they resist, what can turn ‘bad’ stress into a positive, and be able to apply the six steps to coping.
