Session Description:

The landscape in which we work has shifted dramatically…and continues to do so. Uncertainty has become a norm, rather than a once in a while surprise. Trends and competitors are popping up so quickly that data is out of date by the time it is published. Change is the new standard. But change is hard. So how can we prepare ourselves and our teams to respond to this constant sea of change? This session will begin by exploring ways our work contexts have been changing and the impact that is having on workplaces and the individuals that staff them. Then we will discuss the strategies that are needed to not just cope with change, but fully embrace and manage it, such as: finding the opportunity in change, listening to and incorporating multiple voices and adopting an experiment and learn style. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand how work context has changed in recent years and the impact that is having on workplaces.
  • Participants will learn the mindsets and skills that are needed to manage the significant change.
  • Participants will learn strategies to cope with and embrace change.
