Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 1
Part 1 introduces The Change Cycle and resources designed to supplement this presentation. Phil discusses that change is not only a process but that personal change precedes organizational change. Further, he explains that the implementation of change is different than the implications of change.

Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 2
Part 2 describes the science of change in The Change Cycle and the time and intensity of one’s response to change. It includes an exercise that allows participants to look more closely into a specific loss or concern that is most uncomfortable. If you would like to purchase the supplemental resources, they can be found at changecycle.com for $7.95.
Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 3
Part 3 looks closely at the profile of Stage 1 in dealing with change. This profile includes feelings of fear and self-protection. The presentation consists of personal perspectives and the perspective as a manager and leader when moving yourself and others through change.
Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 4
Part 4 concludes the discussion of stage 1 with an action plan of change and begins the discussion of stage 2 with profiles of doubt and resistance. Phil explains the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and provides examples of successful communication strategies during this stage. In addition, stage 3 is introduced with profiles of discomfort and the need to accept the steps necessary to move forward.
Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 5
Part 5 addresses the importance of identifying the specific steps needed to move forward in stage 3 of the change cycle and determining who can help during this process.
Understanding The Change Cycle Model Part 6
Part 6 discusses the fourth, fifth, and sixth stages in the Change Cycle. The fourth stage is one of discovery, in which one determines what decisions must be made to move forward. The fifth stage is about understanding and involves feelings of enthusiasm, confidence, and determination. In this stage, the change process nears completion, so it is essential to evaluate the process and learn how to meet the next challenge of change. And the sixth and final stage of the change cycle addresses integration and the importance of gaining new knowledge through re-evaluation and re-prioritization.
