One of the key “life competencies” required of people in all sorts of different situations today is the ability to anticipate and respond effectively to any change that comes along. These skills are often needed even more in today’s fast paced and competitive work environment where everyone from the newest person through to the most senior leader is expected to demonstrate some “change agent” skills. These skills enable us to lead ourselves, individuals, groups, and ultimately entire organizations, in implementing actions that enable a personal or collective vision to be successfully transformed into reality.
The whole subject of change management is a large and complex affair. To help us to navigate through this subject this storyboard and coaching guide use a four-step approach to change management. This approach can be used as a personal or organizational process, or as a process that can be used to help steer people through major change in their lives at work or in the home.
