The Change Curve

The change curve is a model to understand the different stages of change that we come across, and how we can overcome them. Every business has these states of change to grow through, not just with a change in situations or events but with people too. This falls into change management – as without the acceptance to understand from the staff, change in the workplace becomes impossible.
