Surviving on Shifting Sands:

How to Manage Constant Change

Tuesday 20 August, 9am - 12noon
Online Workshop

We are all aware that change is constant and inevitable, and that it can create anxiety and hardship.

The question is, do we learn from past changes, or do we continually allow our anxiety to inhibit our ability to manage it?

This half day interactive workshop will look at answering these questions and provide some strategic ways to manage change and develop resilience for future changes.

One of the most essential, effective, and lasting strategies involves being able to adjust our ‘paradigm and attitude’. This enables us to escape from our self-constructed constraints and enables us to see more options.
