Building Career Resilience in Change - HP231

Changes in the workplace continue at a rapid pace. New ways of teaching, agile ways of management, new leadership, restructuring, downsizing, new initiatives, to name a few. How do we not only respond to the changing workplace but engage with it in ways that support our career development?
