Greek philosopher, Heraclitus was long ago quoted as saying that the only constant was change, but still today, many change initiatives in the business world simply fail. Our upcoming event will provide you with an overview of change in the context of the modern workplace and how psychological insights can help people deal more successfully with it.
What is involved?
This session will be delivered by David Patey, Key Account Director & Ireland Country Manager with the Myers Briggs Company. David will discuss what causes change in the workplace, factors that influence how people react to change and how psychological insights can help navigate change.
By the end of the event you will:
- have developed a broader understanding on a subject impacting the Civil Service
- be able to apply the learning back in your workplace
- network with colleagues from other government departments
