Immunity to Change

It’s that time of year again, when we turn our long-held desires into shiny New Year’s Resolutions. Lose weight, spend some time on self-care or be a more effective decision maker, even when it comes to the unpopular decisions? Then February arrives and we realize that we are not able to follow through on our commitments. Change is hard, and even harder to maintain.

In this interactive workshop Michael shed light on how part of our subconscious mind, patterns and assumptions stop us from bringing about a personal change that we want. He also talked about what kinds of mechanisms are at play, and how to overcome them, so that we actually can and do change. The workshop is based on the Immunity to Change approach developed by Harvard Professors and Developmental Psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey.
