Changing for the Better - Overcoming Resistance to Deliver Effective Change - March 8th - Salford
To improve our bids we need to embrace change.
Change involves making choices, choices made at personal risk, and risk to those affected. In a world where 70% of change initiatives fail, the odds are against you getting it right. Make the right choices and you’re a hero; make the wrong choices, and you’re a villain looking for a new job.
This session will help us all to look at change in a constructive way. More information is available in this link -
