People who are resilient work smarter, and can negotiate the inevitable changes that are the one certainty of life. People who know what teamwork really means can turn good teams into great ones.

The Challenge of Change has been implemented in a wide range of public and private sector companies both in the UK and NZ. Here in NZ adoption is gathering momentum amongst leading organisations including Meridian Energy, The Warehouse, Mitre 10, Hort Research, AgResearch and the Department of Internal Affairs.

Michael Davison: EME Risk Manager – Cummins

"The Challenge of Change program came to our attention three years ago. Subsequent to this, we have worked with Jo (Dr Clarke) to develop a structure that will enable us to roll the training out to 650 staff in 2014 and beyond. Feedback from staff has been very positive, ranging from 'the course ended too early for me' to 'since attending the course, I've not experienced any further migraines'. Perhaps its simplicity is what sets it apart: staff came expecting gimmicks and techniques, and instead went away with the understanding that 'they always have a choice' or can 'drop the peanut'. In essence, the program is helping us introduce a common language across the business in relation to understanding that stress is always bad, whereas pressure can be good. We have had US/UK staff go through the training and it works across cultures. Our corporate insurer regards this program as best practice and has helped with pilot funding. Demonstrating our commitment to the program longer-term, we have even seen our Employers' Liability premium come down."
