This webinar will introduce you to some ideas and tools that can support your effectiveness and well-being. We’ll discuss the relationship between change, challenge, and personal energy. You’ll learn about four key roles in the change process and the most important skills needed for each of them.

You will walk away with simple, practical tools you can apply immediately not only for yourself, but also for your collaborative teams.
