Wise Sponsors Free Webinar on Creative Disruption

Wise speakerWomen Impacting Storebrand Excellence, (WISE) is presenting the latest edition of its FREE professional development webinar series, Creative Disruption: “It’s Not About Managing Change but Driving Change” – Thursday, February 25th, 2016 from 12:00 – 1:00pm CST

In the presentation speaker Trudy Bourgeois, CEO & Founder of The Center for Workforce Excellence will look at creative disruption.

Disruption, even destruction, is necessary and inevitable.  The question is,  will you be on the front end of the wave or will old patterns hold you back to the degree that you find yourself at a competitive disadvantage? While it is true that most people don’t like change, great leaders and successful organizations have a continuous reinvention mindset. This mindset is at the core of a creative disruptor.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Identify mental games that negatively impact your ability to find opportunity in the midst of chaos.
  • Allow yourself to be flexible so that you can handle any type of change.
  • Understand why becoming “comfortable” being “uncomfortable” is a smart move.
  • Appreciate why your future and company’s success depend upon your ability to be “flexible” and “adaptable.”
