Course Overview
Hello. My name is Alice Meredith. I am a business leader. I have over 22 years of leadership experience. Welcome to my course, Embracing Change: Staying Agile in the Midst of Change. Change is everywhere, companies, organizations, and industries where we work are feeling increased pressures with new regulations, developments, and technology, automation, machine learning, globalization, and changing demographics. Now this course is not designed as a change management course. There are thousands of books and articles already available to help guide you through leading change. This course is designed for you, the individual adult learner. Learnings will be shared to help you become more agile and flexible and open to change as this helps you stay relevant in your profession and your business environments. Some of the major skillsets we will cover in this course are recognizing the value of change. We'll review why as humans we tend to fear or avoid change. Once we realize why we shy away from change, we become more adapt at adapting and growing with the change we face. I'll be teaching the value of having a growth mindset and how this helps us stay curious and open-minded to unexpected change. I'll share with you the most common changes to expect in your work environment and teach you skills that will best help you navigate through these changes. By the end of this course, you will have learned new skills that, if implemented, will help keep you agile and flexible and better able to handle the changes that each of us constantly face. Learnings in this course will not only help us show up more positive and impactful in our work environments, but if used, they will also help us adapt and become more agile with the change we face in our personal lives as well. I hope you'll join me on this journey of learning, embracing change, staying agile in the midst of change here, at Pluralsight.
