Susan Raphael and Maree Upton – Changing your Story One Step at a Time


Workshop Title:

Changing your Story One Step at a Time

Workshop Description:

In spite of our best efforts and intentions to change either individually, as a team or an organisation, we frequently fall short of our improvement goals or have trouble sustaining our achievements. Often we have one foot on the brake and one foot on the accelerator at the same time. This model blends both personal and professional aspects of change by addressing big assumptions and underlying causes that get in the way of progress. It addresses and unpacks our individual, community, and workplace assumptions and provides a method of changing culture through storytelling at a deep and sustainable level.

If people got the best of the session what would they leave with?

The workshop will provide insight into why good intentions and previous actions on addressing change may not translate into expected outcomes   •    Identify your own Immunity to Change, focusing on goals that will lead you to be a more effective contributor in leading change   •    Explore Immunity to Change in relation to leadership from an organisational and system perspective   People will leave feeling energised, thoughtful and informed, having had a meaningful experience and a taster of working with a different model that helps people uncover what gets in the way of change for them and their organisation. People will understand how deeply held beliefs and assumptions get in the way of change and begin to see how this tool can lead to a different approach.      By applying the Unlocking Immunity to Change model people will discover their ‘big assumption’ which will in turn lead to moving along a new path of discovery.

How is this session connected to the conference theme?

The model Unlocking Immunity to Change can be applied in diverse spaces both within organisations and within us as individuals who make up our communities. It reflects the conference theme as it explores stories we tell about ourselves and others both individually and collectively.
