The Power to Make a Difference: The topic for week two is change agency. We define this as: the power, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference. It is about pushing the boundaries of what is possible, mobilising others and making change happen more quickly. Change agents often report that they have the skills and knowledge about making change happen, but are less sure about their own agency for change. Most of the training that is available for people who lead and facilitate change focuses on specific skills, methodologies and approaches. Change agents need this kind of development but on its own it is insufficient. In this module we reflect on the kinds of skills that change agents need to focus on to build their own change agency in order to be powerful agents of change and achieve the results they seek. We look at harnessing old power and new power; building a spectrum of allies; and how small changes can lead to big results.
