About the Session
What must you be aware of to support and manage your teams through change and uncertainty…in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) times like these? Become more familiar with the universal and individual responses to change and some tools for increasing Centeredness, Clarity and Connection. Change and transformation have been Shannon’s career focus for more than 25 years and she’d like to engage in a conversation with you.
