The reality is that connecting, motivating and leading your people through the pace of change that we will continue to see - can be a challenge to say the least.

Momentum Communication: Communicating and Leading Courageously Through Change and Challenges
Change is certain – the pandemic reinforced that. But communicating change effectively is not. Often when dealing with change, communicating the change is where the breakdown occurs. A disconnect may occur between those who are pushing for change and everyone else. Resistance to change keeps people stuck, creates stress and stifles growth and productivity. And people resist what they don’t understand. For leaders to successfully navigate change, communication and engagement with those affected are critical in order to reduce drama, stress and misunderstanding. In this engaging session, you will learn proven, easy to implement strategies on how to effectively communicate, connect and create the momentum needed for success when facing change – whether you are the one pushing for the change or the one having change “happen” to you. (Note: This can be tailored for leadership, leadership teams, sales teams, etc.)
