About the Four Rooms of Change

The Four Rooms of Change is a theory about change. The theory originates from the psychologist and researcher Claes Janssen’s work that shows how an individual or a group moves through different psychological states of mind, during the change process. It also shows how we, as individuals, experience reality differently, and how these differences can prevent collaboration, change and development. Based on these research results, Janssen developed a series of practical and user-friendly analytical instruments, models and tools that are used with great success with individuals, groups, businesses and social systems.
