“Useful tools to help identify where communication of change is needed and the different ways of doing it. Also highlighting the different perspectives other employees may have on change and how it affects their lives. Really good that it related to ‘real’ issues and examples in Guernsey and the Civil Service. Found it really useful to have the time to explore issues with colleagues and benefit from the experiences of others.”
