No matter if you are the boss or just a foot soldier, change affects everyone. In dealing with change, people must address their own thoughts, feeling and behaviors first to be able to go through a change.

There are loads of books and training programs addressing organizational change. This training program focuses on what it actually feels like during a workplace change or a personal change. It provides you with a logical framework to assist you in gaining perspective on the change situation you are facing and its impact and helping you develop insight that will guide you through the transition.

The goal of this one day program is to help you take responsibility for how you react and respond to a change by giving you a set of tools and techniques of self-awareness and assessment to light up the curves and sometimes bumpy ride on your road to change.
