2020 Sizzling Summer Series

Join us for the 2020 Sizzling Summer Series focusing on change management!

This webinar series consists of three parts, with each part being offered twice during the months of June, July, and August.

Part One: Change and the Individual
Change is hard! But throughout our work and lives, it is a constant. This interactive session will dive into why biologically and psychologically change is so difficult for us and present some tactics for overcoming resistance. This session will be offered twice, June 9th from 11am-12pm CT (register), as well as June 23 from 3-4pm CT (register).

Part Two: Change and the Small Group
Leading change in teams requires leaders who are willing to listen and empower people around them. This session will introduce a peer coaching model and give participants an opportunity to practice. This session will be offered on July 14th from 11am-12pm CT (register) and July 28th from 3-4pm CT (register).

Part Three: Change and the Organization
The term Kaizen means “change for better.” When Kaizen is applied through a consistent and sustained culture, it teaches employees to think differently about their work. This session will provide a framework for building a continuous improvement culture in your organization. Part three sessions will be presented on August 11th from 11am-12pm CT (register) and August 25th from 3-4pm CT (register).
