So, Now What?

Joey Pauley, MA; University of Washington Consulting Alliance

Whether it’s a change in University leadership, the impending move to a new payroll system, or process improvements in your department, many things around us are subject to change at any time. Although a change in itself may be out of your control, how you respond to it is entirely in your own hands. In this session, practice applying a mapping process to an improvement goal of your choosing (such as exercising each morning or responding to email more promptly). Through this process, unearth your fears and assumptions, better understand your resistance to change, and discover strategies that can be applied to overcoming roadblocks and achieving goals in other aspects of your personal and professional life.
