Status Quo Bias – Why you resist change, why this will hurt you and how to prevent it from happening in a Post Pandemic World

Resisting change is a natural reaction. It is easy to stick to the status quo and stay in your comfort zone, but in a post pandemic world it will only hurt you. This session will help you question why you resist change so that you can start taking steps forward towards acceptance. Learn how to not only accept change but use it to fuel your success.

Learner Outcomes:
• Examine the real reason behind why you resist change
• Recognize how your resistance to change will only hinder your performance, not help it
• Learn the tools and techniques to turn resistance into acceptance
• Create a personal change roadmap
