Upcoming Workshops


Change Management

  • Why do most strategic change efforts fail?
  • What are the possible negative effects of change?
  • How does stress impact employees?
  • Why is resilience so important in change management?

Change is one constant we all have to confront, but it can make us susceptible to stress and induce interpersonal, health, and organizational difficulties. We need, therefore, to develop techniques for coping with stress and developing resilience.
