Our primary focus at The Change Gym can be summed up in this one question: Why are some people more successful at change than others?
This is an important question for anyone working with people around change.
Our answer to this question focuses on what the person brings to the change process – what they bring internally.
People need more than natural ability, specific training, and prior experience to succeed at difficult change. They need change fitness – that key set of psychological capacities that keeps them moving forward when change gets hard and everything inside them feels like quitting.
No, this is not the same thing as resilience – in fact, resilience sometimes works against change fitness. Nor is it the same as mindsets or immunity to change.
If you’re a coach, you need to understand the key psychological capacities that enable people to succeed at the change process. You need to understand how to identify them, how to measure them, and how to help people strengthen them. If you’re interested in learning that, we can help you.
We are specialists in change fitness and change readiness. We teach it to post-graduate university students, to coaches around the world, and we can teach it to you too. If you like the sound of what we’re doing, and you’re open to learning and growth, reach out to us and let’s explore what we could create together.
