Dealing with Change

Change is happening all the time in our lives, and is quite stressful for most of us. In today’s workplaces, change seems more frequent as employers look to adjust, adapt, and compete. We’re often left feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. In this workshop we’ll explore why going through change is so difficult. We’ll look at understanding change as a “transition”, and discuss strategies for managing through transitions successfully. This can leave you feeling less distressed and more in control as you deal with changes in your workplace and your life.
