Change is inevitable in our lives and our careers. As talent development professionals, we train others on managing change and being prepared, yet we do not take these steps for ourselves. We can be ready for the various changes that will affect our careers by preparing for them in advance and always challenging ourselves to grow. During this session we will focus on two main themes: how to successfully navigate through change and the specific ways to be ready for the career changes we may experience.

First we will dive into how we view change; characteristics and behaviors we can develop to navigate that change well; specific things we can do to navigate change; and an understanding of how we move through the various stages of change.

Next we will focus on some specific career changes that will most likely come our way so that we can develop a game plan to deal with them before they occur. Possible scenarios include managerial changes, role changes, layoffs and terminations, mergers, promotions, new employment, and so on.

Participants will leave with an action plan to help them become even more resilient as these changes occur.

After participating in this course, learners will:
• Discover how they think and feel about change and how that affects their careers.
• Develop game plans to be ready for some of the changes that will occur throughout their careers.
• Create a specific action plan for what and how they will apply from this session.
