In this interactive session, participants will be provided three precepts for managing change. Whether at work or in life outside of work, change will come at us frequently, inevitably, and  at times unexpectedly.  For those who embrace it, they will reap the benefits of what that change brings.  Where there is no perceived benefit, they will learn how to integrate change into their goals so that their plans stay on track.  They will learn how to make change work.
