Michelle Wyatt, author of Buckle Up, Buttercup! How to Drive Success by Embracing the Power of Change, is passionate about helping teams and individuals find success by learning to embrace, navigate, and leverage change. By sharing the change management techniques used to navigate a huge career change for herself, Michelle helps others gain a deeper understanding of what makes change so scary and how to overcome those fears.

In this episode we kick off our month-long series, New Year – Flexible Focus, which is dedicated to helping us move forward in our personal and professional lives while being mindful that anything can happen. As we leave 2020 behind, we still might have lingering pandemic challenges, but we can move forward, being cognizant of the lessons we learned last year about resilience. And if you might also be facing or contemplating a career change, Michelle’s advice will be of great help.
