While change is something that excites people who love opportunities for growth and to see and learn about new things, it can scare those who love the status quo. Personal and organizational change can inspire expressions of resistance and anger.
But there are steps we can take and tools we can use to get the most from change.
In this brand-new, follow-up class to our 8th annual Leadership Conference breakout session, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to manage and cope with change, while helping others do the same.
You will learn that transition is a process, with three phases to be navigated, and change is an event.
After this half-day class with Dr. John Loblack, you will see change not as something to be feared and resisted, but as an essential element of life and work. You’ll also be able to identify and manage the reasons you (and others) may resist change. You’ll be equipped to view and explain change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation and enact strategies for making change work for you in the workplace.
