Our Iceberg is Melting (TD1828)

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description:

What will Fred and his companions in the penguin colony do when they discover their iceberg is melting? How will they handle this problem?

The story of Fred and his penguin colony occurs every day in different forms all around us. Inside and outside the workplace, we are faced with a constantly changing world. Navigating the challenges and relationships associated with change can be overwhelming. Join us as we discuss this simple fable about doing well when faced with many obstacles and how you can manage change in ways that encourage people to adapt more quickly.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Discuss an eight-step process for managing change
  • Learn the role of thinking and feeling in the change process
  • Identify ways to handle change and produce better results

This workshop is based on the book, Our Iceberg is Melting, by John Kotter and Holger Rathgaber.

Presented by: Julia Wallace Carr, Associate Professor, Hospitality, Sport & Recreation Management
