Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change
Facilitated by: Sheila Cameron
For many of us, change is a consistent part of our work lives, whether taking on a new job, learning a new system, or re-tooling how we do things. Sometime change is easy, and other times it is difficult and does not seem to take hold.
In their book, “Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change”, William and Susan Bridges provide a helpful model that addresses change and transition, along with proven strategies that can help us manage the process successfully.
In this workshop, we will:
- Explore the connection between change and transition
- Learn strategies to successfully move through the change and transition process
- Identify ways to support others through the change and transition process
- Adopt proactive approaches to managing and leading change
**All participants will be offered a copy the book “Making the Most of Change, by William and Susan Bridges” **
