In work and in life, change is inevitable. Some changes are planned, while others are unanticipated or even unwelcome.
Each change brings new transitions and adjustments that take time and energy.
On September 23, as part of the Lunchtime Learning series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Bonnie Cain-Wood will present “I Did Not Sign Up for This – Learning to Embrace Change.”
During this session, Cain-Wood will offer strategies to guide you through the process of change. Attendees will learn insights regarding the science of change and the emotions it evokes, as well as tips on how to navigate the process of stretching your comfort zone and creating new thought and behavior patterns to project you forward, both personally and professionally.
