Mastering Personal Change

A Course in Basic Tension Management® for EVERYONE!

How well is change working for you?

Are you …

• Struggling to manage the changes happening in your life?
• Eager to reach your goals faster and more easily?
• Bored with things as they are and feeling stuck?
• Exhilarated one moment and exhausted the next?
• Overwhelmed with things to do — but not making progress?
• Feeling like your to-DO list never gets to-DONE?

You’re not alone!

Every day, people from coast-to-coast and around the world struggle to make the changes they want and need to make in all areas of their lives — and their problem isn’t what they think it is.

They aren’t paying attention to the most critical factor in making change work — the crucial ingredient that determines what changes they will make and when those changes will occur.

They don’t know what it is — and even if they did they wouldn’t know what to do about it.

We do — and in less time than it takes to watch a movie, you can learn how to master change in your personal life.

Information so valuable we want EVERYONE to know!

What you’ll learn —

Lesson 1 — “The Nature of Change”

Are humans, by nature, resistant to change? In this video lesson, we introduce the basic concepts and guiding principles of Tension Management. Through it, you will develop a deeper understanding of the natural relationship between humans and change … and discover the real source of our apparent resistance:

Lesson 2 — “Understanding Productive Tension”

This lesson explores the power of productive tension more deeply by immersing you in the “Four Dimensional Thinking” process central to the ChangeGrid. We also introduce you to the 5 levels of productive tension and explore how each serves you — and interferes with you — in managing change.

Lesson 3 — “Exploring Your Personal Tension”

In this lesson you will take a detailed inventory of your current situation and follow the directions for building your personal activity list and completing your Personal ChangeWorks® Profile using the online system. Through it, you will gain powerful and practical insights into your level of productive tension — and how it impacts the outcomes you seek.

Lesson 4 — “Managing Your Personal Tension”

This lesson will teach you how to interpret your Personal ChangeWorks Profile you created in the previous lesson and understand what your current location on the ChangeGrid means. You will also determine the most desirable location on the ChangeGrid for each activity and learn how to move yourself on the ChangeGrid to achieve maximum possible benefit.
