Do you dread it when you hear your boss or co-workers talking about a brilliant new idea for the business? Is your automatic reaction to a discussion about a new project "but we've barely made it through the last change! What's wrong with the current process/system/structure?"?

If you're like most people, you probably answered "yes", at least to some degree. Why do you think that is? After all, new ideas and innovations can bring about significant improvements in our work and lives. It's not that you don't like innovation, it's just that the implementation of something new means that change is required. Change, at face value, represents an upset in the status quo – a disruption of your comfort zone.

Some people need constant change to keep them interested and happy, they seem to enjoy the constant disruption to their lives. For the majority of people though, the language used when talking about change is often "coping with" or "surviving".

At Shaping Change we believe that you deserve more than this - you deserve to learn how to thrive in change.

We know that change is inevitable and there’s really no way around it. But people still fret over it, worrying about what’s lurking around the corner and wondering when the proverbial “other shoe” is going to drop.

And yet, this is no way to go through life!

In fact, recent research suggests that stress alone is behind 60% of all human illness and disease, with 3 out 4 doctor visits being due to stress-related ailments. Not only does stress cause you to lose sleep at night (which can drastically impact your productivity and mental awareness), but it can also shrink your brain as it reduces grey matter in regions tied to your emotional and physiological functions!

Simply put—change, and the stress that it very often brings, is taking a toll on people every day.

Change – it’s not just something that happens to other people

So what if I told you that there’s a way to ease the resistance, stress, uncertainty, worry and feelings of dread that come with change…? What if I told you there was a different way to manage change in your life? A way that you could remove the stress from the constant change of our busy lives, and learn to thrive in the face of it?

The other things you might want to know

  • q-iconHow long will I have access to the content?

    You will have access to the online content for 12 months. However, the workbooks and activity sheets are yours to keep and you can download them and save them to your computer at any time.

  • q-iconCan I share the program with my team or my family?

    You are purchasing a single user licence for our program. If you want to share the benefits with others, we would love to have them join us and receive their own unique login and password. Although it can be tempting, it is considered stealing if you let other people use your login details.

  • q-iconAre these programs suitable for people going through organisational change, or personal change?

    Thriving in Change is designed for all types of change. Transitions and Transformations is designed for people experiencing organisational change, but the majority of the content is applicable to any change experience. You can certainly apply the learnings from the program to life changes as well as changes at work.

  • q-iconDo I need to be going through a change right now to benefit from these programs?

    No. I have run Transitions and Transformations many times as a live program. One of the things participants often tell me is while they got an enormous benefit from the program, they would like to have done it BEFORE they experienced change as they would have been better equipped to cope. Regardless of timing – if you are in change, getting ready for change, or just want more tools to support you in life, these programs will help you.
