If we don’t manage change, it will manage us. Too often, organizations and individuals don’t pay enough attention to the human impact of change.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
A new keynote by Peter Hiddema, Founder and CEO of Common Outlook Consulting Inc., reveals how people react to change and delves into specific strategies one can immediately begin to incorporate on the job and in ones relationship with others. These strategies and the understanding gained during the keynote are designed to allow the attendees to survive; thrive and even embrace change.
”If we don’t manage change, it will manage us. Too often, organizations and individuals don’t pay enough attention to the human impact of change: the sense of uneasiness, the stress, the worry, the anger that can come with it. If these are ignored, even the best-laid plans and strategies will fail. I have seen this time and again in my work with leading organizations around the world,” said Mr. Hiddema.
