Managing Change in Crisis / free webinar 4/21

  • 1.  Managing Change in Crisis / free webinar 4/21

    If there's anything we all need to know more about today, it's Managing Change in Crisis.
    Barbra Batshalom will present a free webinar on this topic on April 21 (1-2pm ET), thanks to Built Environments Plus and the Sustainable Performance Institute.

    Managing change is a constant in business, but in these times, we are faced with more and faster changes with no way to predict what will happen from day to day. Pervasive uncertainty kills productivity and morale. Successful change management results from a combination of effective leadership, clear and targeted communication, team building, emotional intelligence and appropriate levels of transparency. Leaders need to create for employees as much safety and predictability as they can, as well as some level of perceived control in their lives. The practical tools and approaches shared in this webinar are useful all the time, and especially valuable during this pandemic and attendees will leave with immediately applicable strategies.
    I'm honored to call Barbra a friend (she's a #womeningreen leader who has inspired me for years), and she is also a strong, engaging teacher/presenter.
