Developing a positive approach to both expected and unexpected change is an essential skill in today’s workplace. The need to adjust and alter plans and expectations is now a normal part of life. What remains constant in today’s ever-changing environment is the need for strong relationships built on trust and respect to make the process of change easier.

In this class, you will explore what makes change so difficult to accept and how to position yourself and your organization to anticipate and welcome change as a positive experience. You will learn to look at change through the lens of trust and relationships and walk away with strategies to increase trust in the workplace to successfully navigate change.

During this class you will:

  • Examine the key elements of trust in the workplace
  • Understand how change works at the individual and organizational level
  • Explore the impact of trust on successful change management
  • Practice a strategy for replacing broken patterns that influence behavior
  • Identify your personal behavioral style for responding to change
  • Learn practical ways to build trust at work, thereby strengthening relationships and your organizational culture
