About the webinar


You’ve got a new idea that will improve the performance of your latest marketing campaign.

The problem: you need your team to make changes to their process. And they don’t seem too thrilled about it. Resistance is all too common. In fact, 38% of employees say they don’t agree with the change they are being asked to make.

Let’s overcome this together.

Director of Marketing, Diana Asbury, and Director of Sales, Glynnis Purcell at Workzone led an interactive and engaging 60-minute live discussion on:

  • Why do employees resist change, new ideas, and processes?
  • Three research-backed ways to address resistance to change
  • How you can utilize positive leadership styles to get your team on board from the start
