Change is a fact of life and yet we can find ourselves ill-equipped to manage it skillfully.

The normal concerns that change brings up can lead to confusion, apathy, or poor decisions. In this workshop, you can learn skills to effectively respond to the challenges of change.

• Gain insights about your strengths and challenges in dealing with change.
• Recognize habits of mind that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from their influence.
• Create a strategy for effectively navigating your change.

Expect a weekend of dynamic inquiry and learn to meet change with authenticity, confidence, and clarity.
