This WIF networking event was hosted at Chartered Accountants' Hall, London on 21 September 2011.


In the course of our lives we will all face challenges caused by expected and unexpected changes.

In this session Dr. Linda Brimm, Professor of Organizational Behavior at INSEAD,  will introduce the Seven Seas of Change as a framework for looking at such changes both in life and at work. The more an individual has a framework for telling a story – in this case a change story – the greater their ability to articulate it clearly and to decide how to respond. Dr Brimm will provide insight into difficulties encountered in the change cycle, those moments when individuals get stuck and need support or assistance.
