In Embracing Change, participants will learn...

  • How to understand and overcome resistance to change
  • The secrets to working effectively when everything is changing
  • How to increase risk-taking behavior and become more flexible
  • The 5 stages of adjustment following a dramatic change
  • How to build “personal hardiness” and use it as a buffer against stressful events
  • Ways to handle workplace anxiety

More than ever before, organizations are evolving, innovating and changing to stay alive and competitive. And they’re depending on their employees to accept and support difficult changes in leadership, technologies, policies or management approaches vital to future success. Unfortunately, most employees initially resist workplace change and defend the status quo—it’s human nature.

With this training program, we make it easy and convenient for your organization to avoid resistance that can seriously impact your efforts, productivity and morale and ensure employees don’t just “survive” inevitable changes in the workplace—but flourish in the process.

Your employees will gain a practical framework for successfully navigating all stages of the change process so they don’t waste a minute while finding challenge and opportunity in the new order. They’ll explore their own unique reactions to change and how to work through resistance, anger and anxiety while learning new tools for remaining focused, healthy and productive during stressful transitions.

There’s no better way to build an organization of flexible, resilient employees who thrive on change and are committed to making it work!
