Understanding Emotional Systems to Support Change
From Taylor Ingles
“Nothing is permanent except change,” say the ancient Greeks. Today’s educators would agree. Change can be an emotional experience, often leaving new and veteran teachers confused and frustrated. New educators entering the field are bound to experience a range of initiatives and changes throughout their careers. Understanding the emotional dynamics that underpin change can position all educators to have a successful and productive career in an ever-changing field.
This session will introduce attendees to:
• technical and adaptive change
• systems thinking
• emotional differentiation
Participants will gain a clearer understanding of the change dynamic in their own systems as well as practical tools to influence a positive outcome for themselves and their colleagues.
