Monthly Chapter Meeting


Embracing Change:  Become A Quick-Change Artist

Presented by Kit Welchlin, M.A., CSP | NSA-CSP Certified Speaking Professional | MN-CSA - Speaker Hall of Fame

Join us for a virtual chapter meeting on Thursday, June 10th, when Kit Welchlin will deliver an exciting and interactive professional development presentation on how to embrace change.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the healthcare system, government agencies, businesses, and society as a whole.  With a crisis like this one, with so many uncertainties, unforeseen change, and with so much stress, it is important to learn and apply proven strategies for managing the stress.

It is imperative to recognize and respond effectively to the emotional and psychological impacts this pandemic has had on you, your coworkers, your organizations, and the community.  There are many emotions that are triggered by such a crisis, including fear, anxiety, helplessness, and isolation.  We all need to identify the stages of change and transition, and handle the stress, and learn new work behaviors that guarantee success. 

Attendees will Learn:

  • Strategies for Embracing Change Caused by COVID-19
  • Remedies for Reducing Stress in Times of Uncertainty
  • Mistakes We Make Dealing with Change
  • New Work Behaviors that Guarantee Success
