Event Name:
Coping with Change



Change has become a part of everyday working life, yet how those changes are managed on a personal basis and how our own personal attitudes to change are intrinsically linked is not always easy to understand.  This seminar teaches how to handle transitional periods of change with less disruption and sustained productivity.  This program addresses the human side of change which is more complex and harder to achieve. 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to survive and thrive during times of limbo and ambiguity
  • Manage during times of resistance to change
  • Gain helpful tips, strategies and ideas in creating and sustaining a “change-able” culture
