Change Style Indicator (CSI)

Discovery Learning Inc.’s expertise in executive and organisational development have brought about a portfolio of world-class resources in the areas of leadership development and change management.

Change Style Indicator Measures an individual’s preferred style in approaching change and in addressing change.
This tool provides leaders of all levels with insights on personal preferences for managing change and provides context for how those around them might perceive and respond to their preferred style. The Change Style Indicator uses 20 items to establish a ranking of how the respondent prefers to address and work with change.

The instrument addresses both initiated and opposed change and places the respondent on a continuum between:

  • Conserver: prefers the known to the unknown
  • Pragmatist: prefers to objectively explore the current situation
  • Originator: prefers a faster and more radical approach to change

With the Change Style Indicator, leaders can:

  • Learn about three unique styles for dealing with change
  • Discover their personal  change style preference
  • Learn how a preferred style affects how others perceive an individual and how a style influences the perceptions of others
  • Explore the advantages and strengths that each style offers in a team effort
  • Improve interpersonal communication and understanding
  • Realise the value of all perspectives when resolving issues
  • Increase teamwork and cooperation
