Learn about the psychology of change

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Cymru Wales

Greek philosopher, Heraclitus was long ago quoted as saying that the only constant was change, but still today, many change initiatives in the business world simply fail. This lunchtime session is an overview of change in the context of the modern workplace and how psychological insights can help people deal more successfully with it.

This session will be delivered by Becky Orson, a Key Account Manager, with the Myers Briggs Company. Becky will discuss what causes change in the workplace, factors that influence how people react to change and how psychological insights can help navigate change.

By the end of the event you will:

  • have developed a broader understanding on a subject impacting the Civil Service
  • be able to apply the learning back in your workplace
  • network with colleagues from other government departments

Where : Companies House, Crown Way, Cardiff, CF14 3UZ

When : Thursday 24 October 2019

Time : 11.30 - 13:00 (1 hour presentation and time for questions and networking after)

Booking is online via Eventbrite 

This event is open to civil servants at any grade. Please bring your Civil Service ID with you.

Parking may be available on site but cannot be guaranteed - please email Catherine

Lunch/refreshments will not be provided but you are welcome to bring those with you.

Please note that you will need to seek approval from your line manager to attend and any travel and subsistence costs must be met by your department. This is a learning event and may count towards your 5 a year learning and development days.

    Are there any plans of delivering this presentation to the Southeast region? I have seen lots of presentations and workshops that are of interest to me but they are never delivered to the Southeast area.

    Sounds like a great event, but unable to attend. Is Becky likely to offer this elsewhere... eg Midlands?

    I'd be happy to help arrange one for the Midlands.

    Ditto for SW England. I'd love to attend this session but cannot make this.

    Hi I would find this really useful, especially as a MHFA - any chance of one in Bristol please

    This sounds like a really brilliant event, and from previous comments has lots of support nationally, can this be facilitated by phone or conference call?? which could reach across and be delivered to us all.
