Change Designs Courses are powerful in that they deal with real life organizational challenges in a way that blends rational, emotional and spiritual intelligence. All Change Designs courses are:
- Practical. Based on vast real world experience.
- Empowering and easy to understand. Delegates learn by doing. Delegates get to try out our practical tools and techniques for themselves during the workshop– so they feel more confident about using them back at work.
- Innovative. Fun and exciting.
- Relevant. Up to date.
- Build interdisciplinary team work. Group work encourages delegates from different areas to understand and befriend people in different departments, functions and SBU's.
- Inspirational. Delegates leave courses feeling energized, and often comment that the courses are ‘life changing’.
Skills development : We combine training, practical tools and practice.
As part of our courses, delegates practice using our tools on their own work challenges, making their learning relevant and practical. They also receive a practical toolkit they can use back at work. The tools are published by Change Designs Publishing, and combine the intellectual capital from Ruth Tearle’s vast experience in consulting and facilitation, with the fresh look and feel of Mike Blignaut’s creative designs.
Train the trainer option and customization.
All courses are available as a train-the-trainer option. The practical toolkit at the core of each Change Designs course, together with detailed leader guides and slides makes it easier for your trainers to learn to facilitate a Change Designs course.
We customize our courses to suit your environment, and train your facilitators at your chosen venue.
