A Responsibility to Change

Learning to change is complex and creating lasting, meaningful change is a challenge. We have to work with people‘s existing ideas in order to move forward. This is because changes requires people to examine their attitudes, beliefs, values and actions. Failure to consider these elements can easily lead to resistance to change, because attitudes, beliefs and values act as a lens through which new ideas are judged (Korthagen et al., 2001). New ideas and initiatives, which do not fit into an individual’s existing way of thinking and doing, are likely to be found wanting and will be easily ignored (van Eekelen et al., 2006).

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. (Socrates)

Learn to Change embraces our collective responsibility to change, at a personal, professional and societal level.
