When individuals experience significant change in the workplace – restructuring, changing roles, conflicts with colleagues, layoffs, etc. – the level of stress they experience can often rival that of experiences such as the death of a loved one or other significant personal loss.

And they stress they experience often sets up a dynamic of less than optimal responses to the changes, which can end up making the situation even worse for them.

This program is designed to equip employees with practical tools and skills to respond to change productively, in a manner that minimizes the negative impact and may even enhance their working experience.

This workshop helps employees develop improved self awareness and practices to strengthen and develop their abilities to be resilient in the face of organizational change. Participants learn why some people thrive in challenging situations, while others become overwhelmed. And they learn how to model the mindset, behaviors and actions of the thrivers.
