September 19th from 6:30 pm-8 pm - Humanizing Change ManagementYou know the saying ... change is the one constant! This is a misnomer; the frequency of change isn't constant, it's actually on a rapid decline. The speed of change in the workplace has accelerated, leaving us breathless from the g-force. The ability to manage change isn't just a good idea but is now a life skill. This seminar examines the human side of change management through an exploration of change management roles, change research, models of change, "your brain on change", your change mindset, and how to increase receptivity to change.

September 25th from 6:30-8:30 pm - Managing BurnoutOver the last several years we've rallied to meet countless challenges. Whether it was responding to a global crisis, working from home, working hybrid, or working non-stop - many of us are tired. Our nervous systems have been continuously taxed, and we're exhausted. In this session we'll explore why so many are experiencing job burnout in 2023, as much as 78% of employees. We'll discuss how burnout shows up in our relationship to work, our relationship to our colleagues as well as our relationship to ourselves. We'll explore research based micro-practices that counteract burnout and elevate the 8 dimensions of vitality. This highly interactive session will include discussion, an online live survey tool (accessed through participant's cell phones), individual reflection, large group solution exchange and several opportunities to practice bolstering our vitality. Click here to register! Zoom link will be sent to registrants close to the event date.
