Plenary Speaker
Bob Miglani: 
Four Keys to Embracing Change in the Workplace

Change is hard especially when it’s coming from all different directions – from our external business environment to our internal organization to our home life. Typically, people freeze when there’s so much going on. What Bob has learned is that to be successful, we must adapt and do it quickly.

Using examples from emergency room doctors to business case studies, Bob will emphasize that it is in disruption and change where the walls are malleable offering us the most profound opportunities to grow. The four keys to embracing change in the workplace are:

1) You have to let go of the past. It doesn’t exist anymore. The way we used to work is gone forever and isn’t coming back. So let it go.

2) Accept. The things you cannot control and the things you can are what we need to accept. Accept that you cannot control the change – only control yourself and what you do about it.

3) Don’t delay. Don’t wait. Don’t overthink or over-analyze it.

4) Move forward and take action because that is the only way to grow. Only way to grow your life, your job, your career or your business. Take action.
