When we cannot change the cause of our irritations, many of us blame the other person or situation. This may provide us with some relief, at least for a while, for example saying or thinking:

• They just won’t listen
• They always talk over me
• They are so disrespectful
• It’s their fault
• They expect too much
• They won’t let me…
• They make me annoyed

But what happens when trying to change the other person or situation fails and blaming is not actually making us feel any better? This course ‘Be the change you want to see in your department, team!’ is designed to address this by helping You understand how You can successfully influence the culture and motivation of colleagues and parents You are working with.
