Managing Change - It's Kinda Like Skiing

October 03, 2017


Join Jeff as he takes planners (and would be skiing enthusiasts) through the thrills and spills associated with the ever-present challenge of managing change. Planners have many of the requisite skills to help guide others through the process, but they don't always see it that way. And while not all planners want to (or can be) skiers, they can lend their considerable talents to helping others cope with the process of change. The similarities between a blue square downhill run and a process under the Planning Act are not dissimilar. Jeff will give you a couple of tips and tricks to help you make a smooth run through a change process, getting you to base lodge in one piece, while avoiding some of the more common flat spots, big moguls and black ice. 
Learning Objectives:
• Gaining knowledge about the three stages of change.
• Understanding when change processes are failing.
• Gaining knowledge about a variety of techniques to analyse whether change has been successfully implemented.
