FREE Webinar - Register HERE

Food Manufacturing Specialist, Catherine Cantley, of TechHelp and the University of Idaho, will host a free webinar on leadership featuring Ryck Tanner, Global Director, Leadership and Development at The J. R. Simplot Company. Mr. Tanner's talk will focus on the timely topic of  "Leading Transitions: Helping Others Through Change." 

Today’s environment requires leaders (both formal and informal) to have a deep level of awareness of their own needs in dealing with change and transition.  When we understand our own process of transition, we become better equipped to help those around us. Though we all experience change differently, there is some commonality and clear patterns in the psychological process.  By paying attention to our own skills in navigating these stages of transition, we can improve our resilience and more effectively support those around us.
