Conversations to encourage behavioural change in the workplace

R3 850

Would you like to help strengthen people’s own motivation for necessary change in a particular environment? As a conversation partner, you could support someone to see why change would be beneficial to them – in the workplace as a professional, but also in a family environment or as a friend.
People who are faced with change often feel ambivalent about the choices they have. They may see the benefits of the new behaviour for the organisation and themselves, but it’s also hard for them to make the mind shift.

If it is part of your job as manager or HR officer to communicate about organisational change affecting employees’ work, this course is for you. The same skills can be applied in many other areas where change needs to be facilitated.

Join this course to learn from our communication expert, Prof Carel Jansen, while he is visiting Stellenbosch from the Netherlands.
