    Change is inevitable, and how HR and leaders alike lead through it directly impacts the speed at which new initiatives are adopted. In this session we’ll explore the emotional impact change has on our team members, we’ll learn to recognize resistance (even when it’s disguised as disengagement or passive aggressive behavior), and you’ll gain some useful insights to manage through resistance effectively.

    • 1. Gain a deeper awareness of how change impacts people
    • .2. Understand the role HR and leaders play in navigating and leading team members through change.
    • 3. Learn to spot resistance.
    • 4. Develop skills to manage through resistance and achieve goals.
