Webinar: Managing the Pressure of Change

The business world continues to experience constant change: disruptive technologies, reorganizations, cost cuttings and mergers and acquisitions all create  enormous pressure. It isn’t surprising that over 70% of change efforts fail to meet their stated goals.

Part of the problem is that, according to IHHP’s study of 12,000 people described in the New York Times bestselling book, Performing Under Pressure, co-written by IHHP’s Dr. JP. Pawliw-Fry, most people take a haphazard approach to pressure.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  Managing the pressure of change is a learnable set of skills that was a key take-away from this webinar.
