Working in a Changing Environment
Today's business environment is challenging and fast paced, requireing employees to be flexible and see opportunities for innovation. Change, however, often has a negative impact on individuals. They can become frustrated or frozen, lose sight of what they do on a daily basis, and push back and resist change initiatives. The result is employees quickly become reactive rather than proactive and lose the speed and adaptability that won customers in the first place.
