Navigating Change: A Personal Approach

Life is constantly changing and change inevitably creates stress. Unfortunately, that can lead to feeling overwhelmed and at the “effect” of circumstances. What changes do you want to make in your life? How do you react under stress? How do your habits keep you feeling stuck, resisting the change you know you need?
In this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the impact of change on your mind, body and emotions
  • Assess your “change-resilience”
  • Become aware of the stages of change, what to expect in each stage and how to manage your personal stress reactions
  • Learn critical self-awareness tools that will help you embrace change and move from habit to choice
  • Practice changing limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs
  • Make a plan for self-care and self- empowerment in the face of change

Leading Change

As a leader, you are called upon to lead yourself and others through the change process. Do you have the tools you need? How do you maximize the gifts of our leader- ship style and minimize the limitations? Versatility is one of the keys to effective change leadership.
In these challenging and stressful times, it’s even more important for us to deepen our capacity to act with presence, purpose and awareness as we discover the relationship between self-mastery, empowerment and leadership.
In this workshop you will:

  • Identify your leadership style, the strengths and challenges.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of your role as a change leader, and the characteristics of effective change leadership.
  • Learn valuable communication (verbal and non-verbal) skills, which can be applied to individual and team interactions while navigating change.
  • Develop your own personal leadership “tool kit.”
  • Explore practical applications of what you are learning, working together in pairs and small groups.

There will be a 1 hr. lunch break. You are welcome to bring your lunch and spend some informal time with your "change" mates.
