Topics/Call fo Papers

Whether you work in the public, private or nonprofit sector today, organizations are moving at a faster pace and directions are changing rapidly. Innovation is the watchword of the day and what was an established procedure yesterday may be upended today. From ancient philosophers to modern gurus, people have been writing about the constancy of change. As an Administrative Professional, trying to do your job every day in such a topsy turvy world, you may often be frustrated, confused, and unsettled. There is an alternative, reframe your approach to the situation, adapt to change, and enjoy the ride.
Unless we see immediate benefits when a planned change is announced, we may take a wait-and-see approach. This is especially true when we were not involved in creating the new procedure. When change occurs suddenly, we can become more resistant and even resentful. This results in increased stress and frustration.
This webinar provides you with practical actions for any situation from mild to drastic change, enabling you to be more adaptable and flexible. When we continue to resist inevitable change, we will be unsuccessful and will not get the results expected of us. When we perceive the change as positive and embrace it, we get better results. Learn to recognize resistance and reframe the situation from a different angle. Employ planning skills to be successful in the changed environment. Adapt your communication skills to work successfully in a chaotic situation to implement the change. Learn to reduce stress and increase productivity, while enjoying the change process and maximizing your natural human resiliency.
