Build Your Personal Change Resilience and Learn to Facilitate Change
They say that change is coming at us faster then ever before.  We know that our bodies and brains weren’t designed to handle it.  In this workshop you will build personal change resilience as well as learn how to plan and facilitate change to make it easier for your staff.  In this workshop attendees will learn and practice in the following areas:

  • Understand the brain and bodies response to change
  • Differentiate between acute, chronic and positive stress
  • Understand how a growth mindset can reduce stress
  • Learn and practice 8 change resilience techniques
  • Learn to plan and lead change

A deeper understanding of what makes change difficult for individuals will allow you to not only reduce your stress level but to plan processes that allow your staff to more easily accept the many organizational changes yet to come.
