How to Seamlessly Adapt to the New Normal (webinar) – October 27 at 9 AM
$50/first person; $25 additional people from same firm, 1.0 CEU
Sometimes change is planned. Sometimes it’s chucked in our faces. This year change has been chucked in our faces. That leaves us with a choice: We can fold under the weight of it and complain our way to failure. Or we can make this great shift in the “normal” work for us and our teams. Who says the “new normal” has to be bad, anyway?
PRESENTER: Doug Cartland
