Managing & Communicating in Change

About the workshop

Some say when you travel it is not really about reaching the destination but about experiencing the journey. Linking this to change which we all experience in life and at work we may disagree and say both the goal and the path to reaching the goal is equally important. The challenges arise in today’s fast paced world when we are pulled into managing multiple changes at the same time. The question is how to navigate the landscape of constant change without getting lost, compromising the quality, missing the deadlines, going over budget?Join us for a unique workshop which takes you on a journey through managing change successfully and communicating effectively.

Some companies succeed in managing change, many struggle though. What distinguishes the winning ones? Learn more on our workshop by discovering the tools and best practices to enhance your skills to empower the change.
