Riding the Wild Wave of Change: Tools for Moving Forward


Change is never easy. No matter what kind of workplace changes your team
is facing, it is natural to experience various emotions about these changes.
Tomorrow’s winners are those individuals and organizations than can
constantly learn, adapt, and respond to sudden shifts.

In this interactive workshop you will:

  • Identify your change style
  • Recognize the ways your team members respond to change
  • Explore the positive potential that arises from change
  • Discuss the distinct phases of change
  • Develop strategies to gain agreement and reduce resistance to change
  • Increase your resilience
  • Select tools to help your employees thrive during change

This is a practical skill-building day. You will develop new ways of thinking about the change, and of
assisting your team members in adapting to the change. You will share ideas, experiences and strategies
that work to increase morale and productivity during times of change.
