Navigating Change and Leading Yourself Through It

The only constant in life is change. Market conditions, pandemics, social and political unrest, customer needs, and aggressive competition have made a continual change the norm. Organizations and individuals that are nimble and able to change quickly will thrive. It is not a question of whether we want to change, but rather a question of how we are going to deal with the inevitable. Resistance to change is a normal reaction. This session will teach participants to accept and describe the purpose and nature of change. Participants will leave with practical information along with tools and tips for embracing change with new awareness, skills, and confidence. Attendees will:

  • Identify the stages of emotion that people pass through when change occurs
  • Identify and apply strategies for making a positive transition through the change stages
  • Apply specific strategies for building an optimistic perspective when dealing with change
  • Create a personal plan for optimistically responding to change
