Course Description

Change is a constant in many of our lives. As the great David Lee Roth and Van Halen sang “Change; nothing stays the same.  Change, well we will hit the ground running!”  That is what we all are looking for.  All around us, technologies, processes, people, ideas, and methods often change, affecting the way we perform daily tasks and live our lives. Even more critical in this current environment, having a smooth transition when change occurs is important in any situation.

The Change Management workshop will give any leader tools to implement changes more smoothly and to have those changes better accepted. This workshop will also give all participants an understanding of how change is implemented and some tools for managing their reactions to change.
