How It Works

Mastering the Change Curve is based upon years of research, experience, and the Kubler-Ross grief model. Using a current change initiative as a frame of reference, individuals respond to a series of 24 statements that describe responses to change, choosing from a five-point scale of "Almost Totally True" to "Almost Totally Untrue." The soft-skills assessment identifies which change phase the individual is currently experiencing, and it also provides subscores in each of the dimensions.

Mastering the Change Curve takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and we recommend you allow one to two hours for the interpretation of results, debrief, and action planning.
