Navigating Change In a Way that Works for You

Megan Hunter, EFAP
Wednesday, November 24

Change is constant. While we have always known this to be true, the last year and a half has proven this beyond doubt. We are living through a pandemic, and in doing so, through all of the changes that it has brought personally, socially and professionally. This session adopts a solutions-focused lens and explores different change management styles to assist participants in finding a way to navigate change that suits them best as we move forward.
