Change is inevitable and necessary for business growth and sometimes can be very stressful and even painful. All organizations undergo changes. Whether it’s a pandemic, merger, acquisition, downsizing, restructuring or even simply new leadership, change happens. And yet when change happens, it can throw your world into chaos. Change affects you, your family, and your teams. It’s important to have tools that help to build resiliency and help you recognize the behaviors that happen throughout the change process. By having this knowledge, you’ll be prepared to handle the various situations that change can throw your way and the best tools to serve you and help you lead your team.
In this session, we will learn about living in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) environment, how to navigate the stages that happen during change, and how to build resiliency for you and your team. Lastly, we will learn how to adapt and manage your response to change and provide you with tips that you can use to support others.
