Speaking Brief

Change. This word is used frequently in both our personal and professional lives. 

We use it in how we relate to people: “How do I change them?” We use it when we relate to concepts and ideas: “We need to change how we deliver projects.” It even has its own profession and discipline of principles and practices: “We need a change manager or at least a change management plan.” 

Yet, how we all cope and respond to change varies. Some of us embrace it and thrive amid change, while others resist change and do their best to fight it, deny it, and avoid it at all costs. 

During this engaging and candid conversation, we will explore the science and behaviors of what drives our desire to accept or resist change and explore strategies we can use to support ourselves, our families, and our co-workers to embrace the possibilities of change.
