We at KC
A simple tool to help change stick
For adults • 75 minutes
Wednesday 8:00pm • Centennial 13
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)
Are you familiar with the following situation?: We had this wonderful idea. We crafted it thoroughly, even had a detailed action plan. But now, it’s not working. People just keep doing everything the way they always did. Nothing has changed. Why?
In this workshop we will practice a short process that will help you understand and categorize the reasons why changes don’t stick in your particular situation, and develop an action plan to overcome difficulties.
“We at KC” is an applied tool based on the Resistance-to-change Pyramid, developed by Nieder and Zimmerman (University of Bremen, Germany), combined with techniques from Productive Thinking and CPS.
This is specially aimed at organizational challenges, but also may be useful for personal situations.
We will start by analyzing the dynamics of resistance to change, according to Nieder and Zimmerman. Then, we’ll learn how the tool works and apply it to a generic situation. And finally, write an mini action plan to use it in different situations back at home.
Participants will leave with a template of the tool, and hopefully a small network of partners (other participants) ready to be helpful when needed.
Would like to know why such an odd name? Well, come and see, you’ll never forget!
The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session
- Explaining resistance to change from a systemic perspective
