After a great March meeting on Virtual Reality and a stellar New England ATD conference, the Connecticut Hartford Chapter is ready for an intriguing May chapter event!!

Join us at RedThread on May 17th for an interactive learning workshop on a perpetual hot topic in many organizations....Change Management

Session Description: Organizations, big and small, are immersed in a multitude of changes, at the speeds never seen before,  in all aspects of the business including technology, products, services, communication, both internally and externally, on both supplier and customer sides. They are experiencing a number of change cycles happening at the same time and new change cycles beginning before a prior change cycle is completed.  There is a change-related cognitive and emotional overload on people that, in turn, impacts both individual and organizational performance.
In this session we will explore the role learning and development can play in facilitating change to make it easier for people and organizations to circumvent negative space of change.  Anna will take us through her framework for how we can apply developments in neuroscience and psychology to help people see change as an opportunity rather than a threat and uncertainty and perform in a positive space of change.
