Navigating Change is a course that will help you understand and manage change. Change is part of modern life. We often hear that phrase. And of course, it is true. But what we should also realise is that change is a natural part of life at any time at all. From one moment to the next, everything and everyone is changing. It is the way of all existing things and people. Yet change can frighten us and take us out of our comfort zone.


Workplaces today have been subject to massive changes over the last 30 or so years. The rise of technology has brought with it changes on both local and global levels. New skills have had to be learnt, and old skills have become redundant. People who have been doing the same jobs for years find their services and expertise are no longer needed.

Globalisation has resulted in the closing down of many manufacturing enterprises in Australia and other parts of the world. Staff are more mobile than ever before. Holding down the same job for life is no longer the norm.

Private Life

Private life and relationships have changed as gender roles and family structures have been re-defined. Changes occur throughout life as we negotiate the milestones, birth, death marriage and all that’s in between – children leaving home, menopause, old age and more.

We are all subject to life’s changes, both at home and at work. Some affect us more than others. Those that take us by surprise or that we don’t like can be hard to deal with. We can feel disoriented and threatened.

Understanding the nature of change will help you avoid its potential negative affects. You will better manage things, so that you emerge more confident and positive than you might have done otherwise.

The Course Navigating Change

The course is a short 3-hour workshop that explains the nature of change, what to expect when it occurs, and how to see it through. You will learn about and discuss:

  • The nature of change
  • Its various stages
  • How to move smoothly through the stages
  • The ‘new beginnings’ at the final stage

The workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to better understand and manage change, both in the workplace and in private life. If you want to improve your skills to cope with change, Navigating Change is the course for you.

If you are a workplace, contact us if you would like this course for your staff. If you are a private individual, contact us and put your name down. Perhaps you know others who would be interested? As soon as we have enough participants, we will run a course.
