In times of rapid change, it is important to look at traditional values and principles of a society and understand how they can guide us today – collectively as well as individually. Finding a balance between innovation and tradition, opening and preserving is key for shaping the future.
Change needs motivated and dedicated people in organisations, in the government, in the business sector and in civil society. They become change agents that shape the transformation process, push boundaries and explore new ways. They set an example and act as a role model for those around them.
We are all part of a culture and tradition; influenced by shared beliefs, ideas and norms that shape behaviour. Becoming aware of our own patterns helps us to open new perspectives for learning, as individuals and in organisations. MyCAN supports these learning processes.
We help to build competence through tailor-made trainings that balance theoretical inputs, hands-on-tools and practical experiences. MyCAN events enable exchange with peers who inspire us, provide feedback and encouragement.
Leaders and Managers of public institutions, private companies and NGOs in charge of designing, leading and implementing change processes.
Advisors who are employed by consulting companies, NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks or development organisations; freelance consultants.
Human Resource (HR) professionals who are responsible for designing staff development measures (trainings, coaching etc.) in their organisation.
Every change process has opportunities and challenges. Among them we have hindering and helping forces. Through this training I learned new tools how to recognize opportunities amongst the challenges.
I matured professionally and personally. I feel more competent now. It‘s not just a training. It‘s an Alumni Network, where we can share lessons learned together and educate others.
An important experience for me was to learn more about the nature of human behaviour. How do we respond to and shape the culture of an organisation? The training is a real chance for participants to learn about themselves and who they want to be, at home and at work.
The Change Forum Myanmar took place on the 4th and 5th of December 2019 and offered 200 leaders and managers, practitioners and professional advisors a platform to share, reflect and learn, drawing on insights from change makers in – and outside the country.
The Change Forum Myanmar created an opportunity for interaction and learning. Parallel workshops, discussions, open spaces, training sequences and more offered the participants the opportunity to explore key issues of organisational change in Myanmar, share approaches, discover new perspectives, expand knowledge, acquire additional skills and build networks.
