School Of Best Practices: Management Skills and Navigating Office/Workplace Change for substance misuse prevention leaders with Robert Kenney

“Where do we go from here?” To say we have experienced an abundance of change over the last sixteen months would be an enormous understatement. Whether you and your team are bouncing back from changes in funding, substance use trends, community transitions, changes in your priorities, or the day-to-day challenges associated with planned change, this session offers practical options for the effective management of change. Through in-class discussions, assessments, feedback/advice sharing, and take-away resources, this interactive opportunity addresses how to best navigate the planning of a change initiative and the impact that a change will have on your organization, the communication requirements to facilitate a deliberate or unexpected change, the differences in how people respond to change and what we can do to help them transition to our “new normal,” and how to bounce back from a change through strengthened personal and team resilience. While we cannot control all of the changes that come to us, we can control our reactions to these changes and often our preparation for what comes next.
