Lena Ross and I are thrilled to announce that Melissa Dark is now a licensed distributor and facilitator of the Change Pick n Mix.

New ways of working require new ways of learning!

The Change Pick-n-Mix is an agile learning program designed to build change capability in bite-size chunks. We use a micro-learning approach to scaffold knowledge and capability with people who are too busy to sit in three-day courses.

The program is ‘brain friendly’ – where small pieces of new information are incrementally added to foundation pieces.

  • A 4-hour foundation workshop where Lena and I work with your team to equip them with the basic concepts of managing change in disruptive world and facilitate the design of a set of principles you can use as anchors in the turbulent times ahead. This can be modularised in 2 x 2 hour sessions.

This can be followed up with:

  • 18 x 10-minute themed video clips or as we call them Change Bumps on specific topics designed to help navigate uncertainty and continuous change. With each video comes a handout out and an experiment to try in your workplace. You have a 12 month organisational licence on these – you can share and reuse with your people any way you see fit.
  • Change coaching clinics – these can be done either one-on-one or in a ‘fishbowl’ style with multiple attendees where an experienced practitioner works with you on your change challenges in real time.
  • Delivery of Change Ready Nudges – short pieces of written content designed to nudge people’s thinking about change. These are aligned to the Change Bump themes. We give you up to 100 pieces, you use them in any way that suits you.
