About this episode

How do we lead people through change that is happening right now, but also prepare them for the medium and long-term impact?

Understanding how people react to change, what do people need from leaders at the beginning, middle and towards the end – understanding the continuum of change.

What is best for the people we manage, and how do we respond to those, while also operating on many levels? What are the tactics and tools to manage these multiple layers of change?

The session will be hosted by Penny Miles, Executive Director from Circuz Oz.
