Code: ESC/20/698 Leading Change Effectively - 2 x half day workshop

Who is this workshop for?

This course is suitable for all staff who are involved in, or preparing for, change within the Council

Overview

Even though we encounter change constantly it can still be a challenging and disruptive experience. In this workshop we will look at the human side of change i.e. the neuroscience and psychology underpinning how we perceive and react to change in the external environment. By better understanding key brain processes, strengths and limitations we can improve our experience of change and know how to make it more positive and successful – for both ourselves and for others.
