Location: Buchanan Hall – Advanced Technology and Business Center
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the fast pace of change in our work and personal lives. This workshop will give you the skills to manage change effectively—to put it to work for you instead of against you. You’ll learn how change affects you, the workplace, and productivity, how to overcome your resistance to change with a positive attitude, how to increase your support to make change easier, and how to enjoy and use change as a tool for success.
