Welcome! Ready to dive into discovering your change journeys?

It's time...

Change is a natural process and some people only find that what that process is when they read Stop Flocking Around: What Alex the Albatross Can Teach You About Navigating Change

Whether you have found this page from within the books pages, or a friend poked you about it, you likely have questions. 

The most common questions are: What is the change process? and What the heck is a Book Change Club? Let's answer them both!

As you scroll, you find the answers to these questions, details about this Book Change Club, your facilitator(s) bios, and FAQs too. 

About Change...

An excerpt from Stop Flocking Around: What Alex the Albatross Can Teach You About Navigating Change

"Change happens. It feels crazy, like there is no rhyme or reason to it. We are ticking along in our normal life and, by choice or by circumstance, suddenly everything is different.

That’s change and it happens all the time, to all of us. Sometimes the changes are tiny and fast. Sometimes they are huge and can take a week, a month, a year, or a lifetime. One thing we know is that we all have multiple changes going on at once—all in different stages.Wandering Albatross floating on the ocean looking at the camera

What if we told you that there is a process for change? An actual map that you can use to orient yourself and predict the next steps?

Imagine the change process like a journey. There are landmarks, updrafts, and crosswinds along the way. We also have our own internal compass to guide us. All helpful . . . if you have a map.

Whew! Do you feel better already?

Without the map, the landmarks and updrafts and crosswinds just look like part of the chaotic landscape, and our internal compass seems to wing around in circles. When we know there is a map and can identify where we are on it, the landmarks and updrafts begin to make sense. We can expect the crosswinds and fly straight into them."

What the heck is a Navigate Your Change 9-Week Program?

Great Question! This idea came from our focus group members and has grown in popularity, to the point it has become a key offering from Simply Karen for 2022.

People are starting to realize that change is so much easier with a map and a flock. Over 9 weeks, our trained expert facilitators will guide you through mapping the changes going on in your world, deepen discussions on the topics covered  in the book, and celebrate with you as you complete change and reclaim that energy back into your life! 

We love offering what has been asked for repeatedly and already has had key input - we love that these are alive with our readers transforming themselves!

Your source for the answers to your amazing questions

  • Are the sessions recorded?

    The Navigate Your Change 9-week Program facilitated sessions are recorded. In case you miss one, the main room sessions will be recorded and uploaded to your program. Also, we use them for training purposes. All or portions of the videos will not be made public.

  • What if I need to miss a session?

    It happens. Even when you fully commit to a program, unforeseen things can pop up. We insist that you attend the first session where you are meeting and creating the foundations for your 9 weeks together. The training is provided in the course between sessions so, you may just need to ask any questions you have solely in the community if cannot attend one of the sessions.

  • Do I need to purchase a copy of the book first?

    Although Karen and Karen would love for everyone to have their very own copy, they have generously provided a pdf copy inside of the Book Change Club course. They wanted it to be accessible to everyone taking the program.
