Mastering Change

  • San Francisco, CA (map)

Graceful leadership through change can seem nearly impossible, but it’s an inevitable challenge hyper-growth companies face. Rapid and constant change is challenging for leaders, and often confusing or anxiety-inducing for our teams.

Over the course of two days, we will look at the change management through the lens of design. We’ll explore how to create desirable cultural shifts, transition teams through significant organizational shifts, and build resilience for yourself and your team.
