Training Activities


Summary Video & Discussion

TARGET AUDIENCE: All learners SUGGESTED TIMING: 15 - 30 minutes

The module subject-matter is introduced using a short animated video. The knowledge-check and personal reflections questions are then used to explore learners’ understanding and experience before moving on to other connected activities.

Facilitators can make use of a range of techniques such as brainstorming or debates to explore the knowledge check questions.

Use examples of learners’ experiences in the supplementary activity which follows.


Training Needs Analysis

TARGET AUDIENCE: All learners SUGGESTED TIMING: 45 - 60 minutes

This activity builds on the stakeholder analysis, gap analysis and change readiness assessment completed in previous modules. If these have not been done, the generic scenario is available.

For this activity, learners work in small groups to write a Training Needs Analysis. This is based on what they already know about their stakeholders, their gap analysis, and their stakeholders’ readiness to change.


Coaching Tips

TARGET AUDIENCE: Learners new to change SUGGESTED TIMING: 30 - 45 minutes

Drawing on their previous experience of coaching and the understanding they have now gained about resistance to change and the four common reactions to change, the less experienced learners create Tip Cards for themselves to help them should they ever need to coach somebody. These cards could include things to remember to do, questions to ask, behaviors to look out for, or reminders of such things as common reactions or the Change Curve. Learners should take these away with them for use as part of their work.


Coaching Role - Plays

TARGET AUDIENCE: Executives, experienced change agents, sponsors SUGGESTED TIMING: 30 - 45 minutes

In this activity, experienced change leaders, executives and managers divide into pairs and conduct role-plays, exploring ways to coach people with different responses to various change scenarios. The pairs select a change scenario and a response at random. Playing the role of a stakeholder receiving coaching and a coach, the pairs explore ways in which they can coach the person to overcome their anxieties or direct their energies positively to assist the change.

Learners should work in small groups and the activity should end with each group presenting their as is and to be processes to the other groups and receiving feedback from their fellow learners.
