The Place

Change is a constant. Language teaching organisations, like any other organisations have to be able to adapt, develop, and innovate. This is also true of the teachers and other staff that work there too. But, as the saying goes, “Nobody likes change except a wet baby”. This talk will look at the reasons we resist change, what that resistance actually means, and how we can overcome it. Both for managers trying to work with the team to develop a more effective school and for teachers keeping up to dates with developments in the profession and dealing with change in the school as a whole.
