We all know the resulting stress is significant for leadership and staff.
Managing in an Environment of Change will examine the pressures we face, sharing successes and failures experienced by others. This presentation will help participants develop ways of examining changes, understanding the root cause and developing strategies for success. This presentation will be pertinent to both day-to-day management and project leadership.
