About the Event

Change is here to stay and making demands on the ways leaders and teams work together to

achieve mission and impact. While change management focuses on the processes, tools and

methods organizations use to implement change, we will focus on the framework and tools

leaders can use to build a culture that is communicative and responsive to change. We will

focus on change, not crises, as a constant in today’s world. Using reflection, real examples and

break-out groups, we will explore ways in which we can better lead, work and communicate

during challenging times.

At the end of this workshop you will:

● Understand the difference between crisis and change and have tools to lead in a time of

continuous change.

● Understand how individuals respond to change, and develop ways to leverage talents of

the team to effectively address change and increase learning.

● Understand the importance of creating psychological safety and communicating during

change.
