Webinar: Leading Yourself and Others Through Change

Change is inevitable. Successful professionals must navigate unforeseen challenges and opportunities to succeed in their roles. In this webinar, you’ll learn tools to confidently work through uncertain and challenging situations in order to adapt to change in creative and unexpected ways. You’ll learn how to use the improvisational idea of “Yes, And” to co-create new processes and practice reacting to new situations with little or no preparation time. Overall, you will learn how to practice “bouncing back” from failure to learn from new and uncomfortable professional situations where some level of imperfection is inevitable.
