Leading in Times of Change
Every change brings endings and beginnings and a following transitional period that can be a fascinating mix of excitement, energy and innovation as well as FUD – Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. Between endings and beginnings, is what author William Bridges calls the neutral zone – a chaotic wilderness or a “somewhere-between-two-nowheres” which oddly, is the best time for innovation, planning and action. Join us to talk about strategies for renewing a commitment to your causes, concerns and communities. Learn how to use the neutral zone as a creative launch to your new beginnings including the big four questions and other tools for staying calm, focused and mindful in times of change. Join us on Friday, Jan. 20 from noon - 1 p.m. in The Burrow on the Jupiter campus for the workshop.
