Our mission // Changing ... // Helping to understand the human dimension of change 

When people understand what impact change can have on human behaviour, they should also be aware of the possible impact on their own behaviour. They need to know how they can gradually progress from old to new behaviour.


Allowing everyone to know and accept themselves

Each human being is unique, with his past, personality, emotions, urges, tendencies and preferences. His behaviour is but the tip of the iceberg. To progress from the old to the new pattern of behaviour, everybody needs to stand back and try and understand themselves. They will have to accept that being different from others is only natural. Difference is the norm. The required types of behaviour will be common to all, but each person will adapt them to his personality and internalize them in his own way. It is no use imitating someone or making them feel guilty because they differ widely from you. They will only be able to behave efficiently if they remain themselves and show respect for others.


Giving everyone the opportunity to respect differences in character

Numerous tests and questionnaires can identify the huge differences that exist between people. Everybody has to use a common rating scale to be able to decode and understand the tendencies and preferences of others. In this way everybody will use the same language and describe human behaviour with the same vocabulary within the same reference frame. Difference will then become natural and no longer cause fear, because they talk about the same things in the same language. It is very important to choose a simple rating scale which can easily be assimilated.


Giving everyone the opportunity to understand resistance to change

If people know and respect each other, if they use other people’s talents to compensate for their own weaknesses, they will form a solid, closely knit group whose differences form the basis of performance and solidarity. During the difficult period of change, in which the transition from the old to the new pattern of behaviour takes place, everybody has to go through the classical mental phases, stimulating or stifling according to their personalities. Consequently, it is essential that each should know that we all react differently to change - from rebellion to complete submission. If the team understands this, it will be able to expand its common reference frame. It will form a solid group, even if the change causes difficulties for some of its members.
