Life in the Fast Lane: How to Survive and Thrive in Times of Change

Presented by Phillip Green

Thursday, April 12, 2018 | 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Due to the economic crisis, organizations are accelerating the dramatic changes they're making in the way they run their businesses. Employees, faced with these rapid and often undesirable changes, need help — and so do the organizations they work for. If change is going to be a constant in people’s lives and the number and type of changes are going to happen faster, it is imperative that people develop the ability to live in this constantly changing world without feeling like victims, but rather like partners in the changes they face. Philip Green, executive leadership coach and facilitator with Aflac, shares how to develop the critical skills and tools necessary to cope with change at work and in one's personal life. These skills and the tools that go with them help people gain control over the changes in their lives. Philip shares “real-world” strategies that empowers individuals to embrace change and how to accept, deal with, and maximize change with the greatest speed and least resistance.

Transformation Type™ brings conscious awareness to how we self-motivate, handle change, and produce results…all qualities of effective leaders.
