Title: Mindfulness for Change Management – hitting change where it matters most
Presenter: Wendy Quan
There is rarely enough time to help individuals through change, so why not help employees help themselves? We know that ‘change happens one individual at a time’ but how can we address the individual with our limited resources?
Combining change management with mindfulness is an innovative technique that is now backed by research. See how this is done and the extraordinary ways it is helping people boost their ability to deal with tough changes.
The “Dealing with Change Mindfulness Meditation Study” showed 100% of participants were able to create a better experience of their change through guidance by a change management mindfulness meditation.
Come experience this technique for yourself and hear how companies are responding to this unique method.
This session is the next generation of Wendy Quan’s past ACMP presentations on ‘Meditation – A powerful change management tool’ which was a winning white paper at the ACMP conference in 2015.
