Change is an inevitable part of our lives. How we deal with it has a major impact on our productivity and satisfaction.

In this workshop presented by Human Resources, we will discuss the five stages people go through during times of change, as well as practical ways to navigate those stages and deal with the anger, pressure and stress that change can produce.

You will gain helpful tools and strategies for dealing with the stress and anxiety that change can produce.
