STAND OUT AND THRIVE IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT // Busyness is the new norm so how can you overcome overwhelm

Change is the new constant, and it is relentless in our workplaces. We no longer talk about 5 year plans because we don’t know what the lay of the land is going to be in 5 months time.

Waiting until we no longer feel so overloaded is unrealistic; it’s time to stand out even amongst the busyness. Those individuals and teams who are driving and thriving in a change environment are those who are able to commit to a process and execute on the essential things that need to be delivered.

In this keynote presentation Ali explores strategies for working through uncertainty by exploring the key areas of focus, the two mindsets that matter and steps to refocus and stop feeling overload.
