CHANGE MANAGEMENT is a systematic approach to dealing with transition or transformation.  We all know our work environments have changed and our corporate strategies have had to pivot.  With work-from-home and hybrid options being the new norm, Corporations need to provide a support system and framework to help employees navigate not only the changing environment, but also a changing strategy. 

Most organizations are faced with teams who have worked on and in a business that looks different from where they are today.  Frustration and chaos can reign if strategies and systems are not in place to create stability and safety for teams to deconstruct and reconstruct.
