Change is a natural part of life. While some changes can affect the very structure of your life, other changes can have subtle impacts on your day-to-day activities.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to do the following: 


  • Understand the four different types of change
  • Develop strategies for managing change effectively
  • View change in a more positive manner
