Change Management: The Journey, The Emotions, and Being OK
Join Connext for a Lunch & Learn on the topic of change management.
"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change.”--Charles Darwin: English biologist & father of evolution theory (1809-1882).
Change management within modern organizations, whether public, private, or not-for-profit, is a complex process with many moving parts. The larger an organization becomes the greater the complexity. Join Acey Lampe, PhD who will share her history of leading change management initiatives at Hallmark Cards, the emotional cycle of change, and RED, a practical way to manage change. Please bring an example of change of which you are currently dealing.
Anna Carol “Acey” Lampe describes her passion in life as “helping people understand themselves and the organizations in which they live.”
