Session III.
Presentation: Thriving in Times of Change

The pace of change in Corporate America has never been faster. One would be hard pressed to find an executive or manager from any major organization who isn't being directly impacted by significant changes such as new competitors, a major restructure, a rapidly shifting customer base or disruptive innovations.
Managed poorly, change can take a toll on individuals and the company overall, resulting in loss of productivity, low morale and high resistance. Managed well, change presents new and exciting opportunities to grow and can create a more engaged and competitive workforce.
