Philly SHRM Webinar

“The one thing in life that is constant is change.” How many times have we heard this cliché and it is still as true as ever, only now the change comes much faster and more furiously than ever before. That is why effectively facilitating change is a critical skill all leaders need to possess in order to have a high performing organization that achieves business outcomes that are important for growth and for keeping your competitive edge.

This webinar will give you 3 strategies you can do that will increase your ability to lead people through change more effectively and better manage the resistance you may receive when implementing a change. Then, at the subsequent Panel Discussion on December 7th, you will hear from CEO’s about what their process is for implementing change and what needs to be in place before the change occurs, in order to reduce the chances of resistance.

What you will Learn from this webinar:

  • Understand the emotions behind change and why they are important not to ignore
  • How to best manage our own emotions as well as others’ emotions, in order to facilitate change
  • What kind of leadership skills need developing to support people through change and to see it as a growth opportunity
  • How to overcome change fatigue and what that is
