Leading Change

July 18, 2018

Driving change isn’t easy. We sometimes spend a lot of time and energy developing what we think is a well-designed change initiative, only to have others’ reactions derail the plan entirely. It’s likely that you’re working through many changes as the Allied Health grant period comes to a close. In this webinar, we’ll take a look at both the rational and emotional side of a change initiative, and give you strategies for addressing both. We’ll explore ways to not only keep others engaged in the change process, but also to keep up your own energy as you encounter challenges along the way.
