Just when you think you have something mastered, what happens? They change it! Innovation is risky business. Making a change or bringing in a new idea requires a leap of faith. Are you---and your staff---change-ready or change-resistant? Don't hunker down in change-resistance when it could affect your professional reputation, your team's performance, and your organization's bottom line. You will discover how to recognize the signs of change-resistance as well as understand why people resist change. Newton will share specific steps that will help others take the risk to change as well as strategies to welcome change and innovation.
