Change isn't the enemy many imagine, but much of the thinking around change is often friends to only a few. Most of our thinking about change centers around corporate change and planning to achieve that. Finance, productivity, risk assessment, restructuring, and timetables often consume most of the planning time, with little or no consideration of individual concerns. However, every corporate change involves a multitude of personal changes without which the corporate objectives cannot be fully achieved. Individually, we experience change both planned and unplanned; the common factor in all change is uncertainty and how to cope with it. Uncertainty is the principal factor in creating stress, yet most plans for change do not include stress as a factor. This session looks at a model for successful change both corporate and individual that incorporates coping with stress as a crucial factor and is friendly to all.
