Lighting the Way to Change
Change is a natural phenomenon in life and no matter how hard you try, you can't escape it. Today's workplaces are experiencing more drastic and rapid changes than in any other time in history. In a typical workplace you are likely to experience change in structure, change in policies, change in practices, change in processes, change in technology, and change in personnel.
