We live in a world of exponential change. Individuals and organizations increasingly face new ambiguity and complexity amidst expectations of fast-paced adaptability. It is absolutely possible to stay centered, survive and even thrive through transition states. One key requirement is to recognize that affected individuals are living, breathing, and dynamic beings. They need skills and a guided approach toward greater sensitivity, nimbleness and success.

Thriving Through Transition goes beyond traditional change management techniques to include breakthrough, science-based practices in conscious awareness, emotional intelligence, somatic psychology and mind-body techniques to discover new pathways and behaviors for lasting impact.

Who This is For

This course is designed for people managers, project leads, HR professionals or any individual contributor looking for better tools to deal with change and resulting improvements in agility. Teams that experience this training together may discover and share more openly new strategies leading to improved performance and satisfaction.

Course participants learn proven strategies and tactics to rapidly mobilize around and embrace changes associated with technology, business process, organizational structure, and cultural norms. Real-world examples and real-time participant stories make the lectures, exercises and discussion groups clear and impactful. Participants practice techniques in meditation, breathwork, visualization, observation, root cause analysis and more to know how to respond (not react) to different workplace stimuli. As a result of this training, individuals navigate change with less stress, and organizations realize the benefits of transition with greater speed and satisfaction.

What to Expect

Thriving Through Transition is a 7-week, instructor-led, online course and student cohort experience. Each module is 60-90 minutes of instruction and practice per week. Students will engage in on-demand lectures, hands-on exercises and personal reflection on their own time. The learning experience will be enhanced by online Q&A and live interaction with the trainer and fellow students. Additionally, there will be three 1-hour live, online interactive events during the course to strengthen interpersonal relations, practice application of theory and reinforce learnings in an experiential way.
