Rocking the Resistance to Change: Getting from "Heck No!" to "Heck Yeah!"

Can resistance be an opportunity or is it always an obstacle? Training professionals need to take charge as effective change agents, whether they work independently or for a large corporation. This presentation is an opportunity to engage, both in content and interactivity, the challenge of working through resistance to change. Attendees will work in groups with case scenarios to step into what might be familiar or unfamiliar roles when it comes to working toward change. We will learn to recognize and track the progress of groups toward the “Yes!” as well as where the obstacles arise and how to address, welcome and work through them so that the team is on the same page and ready to begin the process toward needed change.

Join us for the May meeting and become a positive change agent!
