Company changes are hard for most employees, and they can be especially hard for managers caught in the awkward position of having to communicate and enact changes they didn’t initiate. Yet the success of company change is critically tied to managers’ ability to lead their teams through it. Learn about the common challenges facing both managers and the HR and L&D leaders who support them, as well as solutions and lessons learned from people who’ve been there before. You’ll leave with practical ideas to help equip managers to survive, thrive, and lead effectively in tumultuous times. Audience participation is encouraged!
