Volatility has quickly become the new normal. We are all being asked to innovate more quickly and creatively than ever before in order to stay relevant and connected in an ever changing environment. It’s no surprise this uncertainty brings up various levels of fear, which we often ignore or avoid altogether which doesn't help us get where we want. Instead, how might we work with fear in order to manage change with resilience? How might we hone our agility, spontaneity and storytelling skills in relationship with fear? We do it by tapping in to our ability to play. Join Guryan Tighe, Founder and Fear Technician at Fourage, Shannon Hughes, Principle Experiential Trainer at Enlivened Studios for an interactive gathering that explores change management in today’s business through the combined impact of Fear + Play.
