Lunch & Learn: Change Management Through the Eye of a Needle

Leaving our comfort zone can feel awkward for some and at the very least can produce feelings of anxiety, fear, or disengagement.  In times of uncertainty or in response to a new set of circumstances, our approach to change can be the catalyst for growth or set-back.  It’s our choice.  Dr. Debbie will cover Kurt Lewin’s theory of change.  Unfreeze, change, re-freeze.  Methods for navigating or establishing a “new normal” are often in three parts.  Seldom does anyone make it up the “mountain” in the same way.  Learning outcomes include:

  • Identifying the force factors
  • Techniques for easing the transition
  • Re-setting your new normal

 When: June 23 12:00-12:45 PM
