Managing Changes (Polimi Open Knowledge)

The only constant in our lives is change. Sometimes, we consciously decide to make a change in our lives (eg. when we change jobs, or when we move to a new city); at other times the environment changes around us, forcing us to adapt to new conditions. Sometimes change is a moment of joy and curiosity for new things, at others it represents a period of grief and mourning for what we leave behind. Sometimes change is evident, profound and irreversible, sometimes it takes place in a more subtle way, via a long and inexorable process. But in any situation, change represents the end of one state and the beginning of another. Change often means abandoning old habits and certainties to open up to the new and unexplored. Each period of learning in our lives is based on this concept: only thanks to courage and the will to get out of your zone of comfort, can you learn new skills and abilities. It is not the change in itself that scares us, but the idea that we create of it. We rush to label the new situation as good or bad luck, but it is our subjective interpretation of the facts that will impact how we experience the moment of change. How many times have we cried in front of a door that is closed to us, regardless of the door that was opening up somewhere else? In this course, you will learn the main dynamics related to personal and professional individual moments of change. Knowing the dynamics, it will be easier to be aware of emotions (your own and of others) that any change brings. You will learn to face resistance more effectively and develop specific skills for managing the process of change with increased awareness and self-confidence.

Gestire il cambiamento (Polimi Open Knowledge)

L’unica costante nella nostra vita è il cambiamento. A volte siamo noi a decidere consapevolmente di dare una svolta alla nostra vita (ad es. quando cambiamo lavoro, o quando traslochiamo in una nuova città); altre volte è il contesto che cambia attorno a noi e ci costringe ad adeguarci alle nuove condizioni. Ci sono momenti in cui il cambiamento costituisce un momento di gioia e di curiosità per la novità, in altri esso rappresenta un momento di dolore e di lutto per ciò che dobbiamo lasciarci alle spalle. Capita che il cambiamento sia evidente, profondo e irreversibile, oppure che si svolga in modo più sottile, attraverso un processo lungo e inesorabile.

Ma in qualsiasi situazione, il cambiamento rappresenta la fine di uno stato e l’inizio di un altro stato. Cambiare spesso significa abbandonare vecchie consuetudini e sicurezze per aprirsi a novità finora inesplorate. Ogni apprendimento nella nostra vita si basa su questo concetto: solo grazie al coraggio e alla volontà di uscire dalla propria “zone of comfort”, si possono apprendere nuove capacità e competenze. Non è il cambiamento in sé che ci spaventa, ma l’idea che ci creiamo dello stesso. Ci affrettiamo ad etichettare la nuova situazione come fortuna o sfortuna, ma è la nostra interpretazione soggettiva dei fatti che impatterà di seguito su come vivremo il momento del cambiamento.

In questo corso conosceremo le principali dinamiche legate ai singoli momenti di un cambiamento, sia personale che professionale. Conoscendo le dinamiche, ci sarà più facile essere consapevoli delle emotività (proprie e altrui) che ogni cambiamento suscita. Impareremo ad affrontare le resistenze con maggiore efficacia e a sviluppare competenze specifiche per gestire il processo del cambiamento con una maggiore consapevolezza e sicurezza interiore.

Questo MOOC rientra nell’area di competenze e conoscenze trasversali secondo la qualificazione europea di abilità/competenze, qualifiche e occupazioni (ESCO – https://ec.europa.eu/esco/portal).
