  • Description

    Effective leaders recognize and understand that resistance is greatest when change is unexpected or unexplained. As a result, they take a proactive approach by developing strategies and compelling communications to minimize resistance, as well as help individuals move through the change curve towards commitment. Communication strategies need to be well thought out and purposeful to create excitement and mobilize people to take action. In this engaging session, you will learn how to create a sense of urgency for the change, how to address individual concerns, and what people need communicated to them in order to gain their commitment to the change.
