Course overview

Change occurs when one thing ends and something new or different begins. It usually means moving away from the familiar and towards the unknown. The time between these two points is called the transition, and it is normal to find this time stressful. Throughout the transition, people have to let go of the old and take on the new – therefore, change always involves some type of loss. This course will prepare you to understand and cope with the impacts change can have on you.

This course is ideal for

Team members going through change at work.
