Change, Emotions & Resiliency with Chris Musslewhite, President and Founder of Discovery Learning
While change is an event in time the emotional response to change is a process of transition over time. Emotion plays an important role on an individual’s commitment and resiliency and can be critical to the success or failure of a change initiative. When leaders understand this they are better able to help themselves and others to transform their reactions from resistance into resiliency. This session will explore the newest tool from Discovery Learning, Change Navigator, and how it can assist you as a coach to help the leaders you work with more effectively navigate change.
