From March 29 to 30 we’ll be hosting a public workshop on managing change. This seminar-workshop prepares the participants to deal with changes in the workplace. It provides a venue to express their experiences on change, their reactions/responses and strategies on how to deal with change. Moreover, it provides the participants on how an organization should manage change.

This workshop will help teach participants how to accept that there are no normal or abnormal ways of reacting to change, but that we must start from where we are. Change is an opportunity for improvement and enhancement.

You’ll be able to see change not as something to be feared and resisted but as an essential element of the world to be accepted, and embrace change while finding fulfillment in the process. Participants will also be taught that adapting to change is not technical but attitudinal. Change is not an intellectual issue but one that strikes at who you are.
