As a career practitioner, you've likely encountered a scenario like this: your well-established client service procedure is disrupted by the introduction of a new system. Your workflow and sense of familiarity, control, and security are disrupted, and you worry about the potential mistakes you’ll make, or how the new logic will affect your service. 

Recognizing the necessity of workplace change for innovation and growth doesn't diminish its direct impact on your daily work life. It still brings challenges and often makes you feel uncomfortable and emotionally exposed, especially when feelings of resistance take over. 

So how can you navigate new work challenges while being in a vulnerable state and feeling the pressure of maintaining business as usual for your clients?

In this course, we invite you to consider how an open and positive approach to workplace change can not only benefit your own career and job satisfaction but also contribute to a more resilient and adaptable workplace. You'll uncover the driving forces behind workplace change in the career development sector, learn how your perspective shapes your experience of change, and discover the benefits of embracing vulnerability. You’ll explore a transition model that can guide you through any change and help you develop a practical attitude toward it.

By the end of this course, you’ll feel like you can take the helm of workplace change and be proactive and positive amid the challenges. You’ll be able to apply simple tools and strategies that will support your professional growth and well-being during moments of work instability.
