Are you getting in your own way of implementing a successful change management plan?

As Talent Development professionals, we are often tasked with leading or supporting change initiatives.  Stress is often a companion to change, and if we don’t understand how our “Stress Style” impacts others, we can actually be in our own way of implementing a successful change management plan. 

This session will introduce the four main behavior styles, how people in each of those styles “show up” under stress, and explore ways we can reduce our stress behavior as well as the stress behavior of those around us.
