Change Management – Costa Rica

On-site in Costa Rica


“To achieve goals you’ve never achieved before, you need to start doing things you’ve never done before.”

Stephen Covey

**This course can be taken as a 1-day stand alone workshop, or can be combined with Design Thinking for a powerful, 3-day, transformational learning experience.**


Change is the only constant in life. As the COVID era makes quite clear, change readiness is not just a state of mind, but a necessary skill for organizations and individuals alike.

This 1-day workshop focuses on two major Change Management elements:

  1. First, we’ll take an introspective and personal view of working effectively through a rapidly changing environment.
  2. Then the focus turns on your team. Supporting and coaching others through change is a challenging yet powerful and vital skill.

What is Change Management and why is it important?

Change can be uncomfortable or downright scary. And yet, it is a constant in our lives and within our organizations. Change Management is a method of preparing, equipping and supporting people to effectively embrace and execute change in order to push forward  organizational success.

The world is constantly evolving and needs are always shifting. An organization that is change ready is also one that effectively and quickly adapts to an ever-changing environment, develops innovative solutions, and can advance overall productivity and performance.


By the end of this course, you will:

  • Identify and understand the purpose of change and its impact on you and others.
  • Explore a user friendly model to understand your personal reaction to change and define what is required (personally and as a leader) to cultivate a change ready mindset.
  • Engage in and experience practical techniques to effectively integrate and execute new and/or shifting organizational priorities.
  • Identify and demonstrate the personal leadership skills that are necessary to work through change with confidence and coach others.
  • Develop a personal action plan for continued personal and professional development.
  • Earn a certificate from the University for Peace, established by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

The course is designed to be a practical and hands-on workshop, allowing space for sharing and peer-to-peer learning. We will meet face-to-face at the UPEACE campus, abiding by and respecting all of the COVID protocols established by the Ministry of Health in Costa Rica.
