Change is Good... You Go First

The pace of change is accelerating and is more complex. Change is occurring more frequently, and can become overwhelming. Today we all need new tools and rituals to help us not only survive, but thrive in this world of technology, innovation, and disruption. In her keynote program, Change is Good, Karen empowers you with three critical steps to lead and inspire change. She will debunk several myths around motivating change while sharing the missing links to growing a culture of change and modifying behavior.

Whether your natural instinct is to embrace change or to run from it, this program is for you! You will leave with the tools to develop a “change mindset”. This will enable you to access new ways of communication, develop new skills, and make a shift in thinking. It’s time to get excited about change. Are you ready see the opportunities change presents?
