Taking Care of Business seminars are educational programs, and an opportunity to learn from industry leaders. Here's the information about this month's session:

TOPIC: Change Agility: Lead by Example | Presented by Dale Carnegie Training

HOST: Rainbows United, Inc.

Target Audience: Business owners and managers

Considering the rate of change in today’s workplace, there may be no more important skill than the agile adaptation to change. Sometimes you enjoy the challenge and opportunity that it presents. Other times you may resist, focusing on what you might lose, rather than possible gains. Your ability to adapt to workplace change is usually closely observed by leaders and team members, so it is important to adapt productively and positively, no matter how you might feel personally. In this session you concentrate on the aspects of workplace change that are within your control and commit to adapting to meet the challenges of change. You examine ways to adapt your attitudes so that you are ready to meet the difficulties of a changing work environment, so that you make a positive impression on others in the organization.

Objectives

  • Define the challenge of change
  • Commit to principles for adapting to change
  • Adapt our personal patterns and attitudes
