Change is all around us and can bring huge benefits, but unless you deal with people’s real and imagined fears and concerns, most of us will try to avoid it.

Change happens in different ways depending on the circumstances. Understanding the different types of change and the effect change may have on different people is important as how it’s managed can set the path for trouble or triumph.

This session is designed for new or first-time managers who want to develop their management skills and learn how to manage themselves and their team through a period of change.
