Managing Change. Penney's Forum, Fall/Winter 1978.
J.C. Penney Co., Inc., New York, NY.
Forum, published twice yearly, is one of a group of educational publications and teaching units provided for consumer educators as a public service by J.C. Penney Company and obtainable from a local store manager or J. C. Penney, 1301 Avenue of the Americas, N.Y. 10019. Since many people function as change agents, this issue was developed to bring together as much information as possible on the nature of change to help those involved in change efforts to be more effective in their roles. The articles include self-analysis instruments on one's attitudes toward change and trust, strategies for helping people convert controversy into creative change, and a six-step process for creative problem solving. Other topics are change agents as advocates or methodologists, stress and the agent of change, conflict as a climate for growth, and experiencing change in regard to self-knowledge. A worksheet for planning personal change efforts is included, with an annotated bibliography of materials dealing with affecting personal change and change in others. Also included are a list of resources in consumer education available on free loan from J. C. Penney and a descriptive order form for all their consumer education materials. (DL)
