Rationally we know that change is imminent and to stay relevant we must adapt quickly, but emotionally we want to stay in our “comfort zone.” In this session you will learn how to change when change doesn’t come naturally by mastering new habits and skills. After all, for things to change, somebody has to start acting differently. Maybe it’s you, maybe it’s your team.
