Workplace change – no matter how frequent and widespread, is still stressful and frustrating to many. As a leader, you may find yourself in the awkward position of having to implement change initiatives that you may not fully understand or even agree with. Welcome to today’s organizational reality – where constant change is now the status quo!

In this practical and upbeat full-day workshop, leadership and workplace communication expert Merge Gupta-Sunderji will focus on three main areas. First, insights into how people react and respond to change (and why it can sometimes overwhelm even the best of us). Second, practical ideas and approaches to overcome your own mental roadblocks when it comes to organizational change (and which inadvertently can sabotage your own success). And third, specific tools and strategies to be a positive and effective agent of change for those you lead (in other words, how to get everyone on the bus and moving in the same direction).
