Adaption to Change
It is important to change, as adaptability enhances ability to handle any variation or modification in our work or life in general. No matter how serious the circumstance might be, instead of wasting energy trying to change the situation, we need to change ourselves, thus achieving success in career and life. With all of the technological and geopolitical disruptions that has happened over the past two years, many people are finding it hard to stay on top of things – let alone adapt. Also, the statistics has shown that our bodies and brains are designed to resist change. For this reason, many of us dread the idea of slightest change in our daily routine and shudder at the thought.
The presentation will show the attendees techniques to adapt in a rapidly changing world. The presenter will also share practical tips for adapting to change and overcoming the resistance within you, which can become an ultimate barrier to achieving a rewarding promotion, fulfilling career or a happy and joyful existence.
