By participating in this inspiring and practical session, you will be able to:

  • Identify how people react to change based on the neuroscience of the SCARF model.
  • Use the SCARF model as a framework for anticipating and mitigating your emotional responses to change
  • Apply strategies that develop agility for participating in change initiatives.
