Finding Perspective During Difficult Transitions*

While not all change is negative, is it still disruptive. Finding and maintaining perspective is key to navigating change. The challenges of working and (and living) during the past two years, in particular, have shaken the confidence of many leaders and professionals as the world around us ceased, temporarily, to be normal. So how do we individually and collectively move forward? This workshop focuses on finding, again and again, the point of perspective and grounding our actions and attitudes through the many seasons of change we all face in our lives, personally and professionally.
