Program Description:

“The only constant is change.” 

Heraclitus, 500 B.C.

Are you experiencing a transition in your life?  Thinking about making a change? Looking for a new job? Or, are you just living “life as usual” in the midst of lots of change around you?

Change (an event) can bring up many emotions:  excitement, fear, resistance, anxiety, and/or confusion, to name a few. Transition (our psychological and emotional response to change) can feel like we’re on a roller-coaster.  Come join speaker, trainer and certified professional coach, Barbara Phillips, to learn practical strategies that will help you build resilience and more effectively navigate change and transition in your life. 

You will learn:

§  Typical reactions to change and where you are in the "change curve"

§  How you personally respond to change

§  Practical tools and skills to better manage stress and anxiety

§  Steps for increasing your readiness to embrace change and overcome resistance

§  How to develop resilience, build your confidence and become a "change master"!
