Event description

Description

Change, with its accompanying loss, grief work, and conflict is constant. Organizations that develop mastery in working with change can sustain optimal effectiveness. These leaders and organizations recognize that change cannot be managed, that energy spent trying to manage change is wasted energy, and that productive use of individual and organizational energy is achieved by working with change rather than against it.

This Summer Academy is your opportunity to explore what it takes to work with Genuine Contact as a holistic approach to change. During this week-long learning intensive, you will explore and learn about:

  • leading and managing in today's performance environment of constant change
  • how to work with constant change with its accompanying constant loss...and the impact of grief cycle work that is also constant
  • the benefit of reframing business initiatives and projects within a change framework
  • making the most of a holistic approach for thriving in change
