Overview of the webinar

Change is a fact of life today in the workplace. It is not going away. New leaders will be asked to step up, jobs will be changed, new skills and capabilities must be developed, and employees will be uncertain about what’s going on and what’s their future. 

But as common as change is, workers may not “buy” for a variety of reasons. Even necessary and routine changes can be accompanied by squabbling, subtle undermining, the scenes foot-dragging, needless political turf battles, - in short symptoms of resistance.

Due to the increased pressure to respond to change quickly, and the changing dynamics of the workforce, human resource professionals as well as line and project managers must also wear the hat of change agents – leading the way to make change work – to be effective and productive and cost-effective. The secret to managing greater levels of change is not to press harder on the pedal already floored, but to shift gears – to develop change resiliency in yourself and your people – to become a change agent.


This webinar is for your managers or executives, project or team leaders, human resource professionals, or directors, to fully understand the human elements of change and create effective strategies for engaging their people to overcome resistance and move forward with the change. 

Who should attend?

CEOs, COOs, VP of Human Resources, Chief Learning Officers, Directors, Project Managers, Operation  Managers and Supervisors, Team Leaders, and Human Resources Professionals.

Why should you attend?

Is change occurring in and for your organization as it navigates the “New Normal”? Of course, it is? Are you trying to get a handle on this “new normal” workplace? Are these changes causing stress or conflicts for you and your team? Do you know how to get everyone on board the change train that’s rapidly heading out of the station?  How do you get employees to not only go through the motions but also actually “buy into” the changes that are necessary? 

Because the pace of change has speeded up, managing change is increasingly a part of every supervisor’s, team leader’s, and line manager’s job – not just that of top management. Most people don’t resist the idea of change as much as they resist being. Therefore, to bring about change in your team means learning how to manage the human side of change – the “people issues. The challenge is to turn it around – to change that resistance to commitment.


This practical, problem-solving webinar provides participants with the tools and strategies for making change work in your team, department, and even throughout the whole company. You will learn to apply the four key skills and implement the four key steps for managing change successfully.
