Developing & Implementing an Outward Mindset (via MS TEAMS)

Course description:

How we see the world (our mindset) influences our behavior and the results we achieve. Our mindset is influenced by several factors, especially our thoughts and emotions. Understanding the interactions of our thoughts and emotions can open us to new choices on how we can achieve different results despite any change in our outward environment. Studies show that organizations that focus on this kind of mindset change are four times more likely to succeed in organizational change efforts than companies that focus only on changing behavior.Date & Times: Course is divided into four sessions July 27, 9 AM – 12:30 PM; July 28, 9 am – 12:30 pm; July 30, 9 am – 12:30 pm; July 31, 9 am – 12:30 pm
