Change Management

Facing change is one of the most difficult parts of life, both personal and at work. This year, 2020, is proving that more than most. Change presents an unknown that can fracture team solidarity and productivity. But in today’s economy, change is happening faster than ever, in technologies, working styles, location, roles, and projects.
