Description

NOTE: We originally built this course with the intention of addressing normal workplace change. However, with the spread of COVID-19, the normal workplace itself is changing. We wanted to get this course out sooner than planned as we feel the strategies and techniques included will help you better face the unprecedented change the world is going through now.

Change can be hard. Change is also inevitable and necessary. In order to successfully grow as a company, a team, or an individual, we must be able to adapt to change and persevere through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Easier said than done, right? This course will provide you with the strategies you need to personally handle the constant change we face in the modern workplace on an individual level. We’ll zero in on 5 change-focused mindsets you should adopt and some concrete strategies to put them into practice! You’ll finish this course with the tools you need to confidently become an agent of change.

In this course, you will:

  • Use situational awareness to better comprehend change as it happens.

  • Work through the 5 Stages of Change to navigate emotional responses to change.

  • Adopt ideation techniques to help generate innovative approaches to new situations.

  • Reframe your circumstances to confront change with a new perspective.

  • Discuss how to make decisions without knowing the full picture.

  • Identify the questions you need to answer in order to clearly communicate a change.

The modern workplace does not stay the same for very long - change agility is an essential skill in order to function successfully at work. Having the tools to prepare for and move through change (when it inevitably comes) will set you up to be more resilient and flexible when it really counts.

As someone who has dedicated my life to learning and education, I have seen my fair share of change - first as a high school teacher and now as the VP of Learning at Udemy. I have spent my career focused on helping others grow, something that is absolutely rooted in our openness and willingness to change. Now, it’s part of my job to prepare my colleagues for constant change so they can move through it successfully, and I hope to help you do the same in this course.

If you're ready to face change with a new mindset, let's get started!

Its good I can correlate this with the situations which I have dealt in my personnel life and failed because of no proper guidance. But after this lecture I think I could take changes in more positive manner.

I found the course very informative. It helped me to reflect in current and past changes and helped me to ready myself for future changes. The content and the presentation is wonderful and the workbook is a nifty addition that you can refer back to.

This course helped me understand the necessary steps to take in order to be flexible or adaptable to changes at work. Various techniques were given with strategies to take when unexpected changes happen. Got to view at it as positive but meanwhile work with myself on the reactions and feelings I get, validate and evaluate them. Then seek out what tools best work for me to accept the change. Important thing is to communicate with management any doubts to clear the air and move forward. Good course. Thank you!

What I really appreciate is reminding people that (oftentimes) what is best for the business is best for them. That sounds like a sell-out statement but it is true. If your values and your company's values do not align well enough, then move along. People should not expect their company to simply change for them in all matters.

Good tips. Specially the communication part.. Questions to Lead/Ask for a change.. these could be very helpful in probing a problem and identifying a solution irrespective you are a a recipient of a change or a leader driving the change!! Thank you.

The course is good, everything is explained briefly. It would be a great learning if more examples are there.

Paul31 March 2020

The format is too much single lecturer delivering the message coupled with reading a pdf. Its just not interactive at all and no situational examples. I was expecting more for a course titled Agility.

Great tangible approaches to deal with whatever change you are dealing with. I really liked learning about the Questions to ask (or provide) when communicating about change and the reverse brainstorming technique. Thanks for an informative course!
