Getting used to change: exploring the impact, effects and implementation of change

Although we are used to anticipating and planning for change, sometimes change is unexpected. This week’s daily webinars will focus on those components of MyLeadership that help build change readiness.
Change requires everyone involved to adapt, either proactively or perhaps with a great deal of resistance. This webinar considers how we may be more reactive than resistant.
