Heading Back to the Office
Mastering the Transition to In-Person Work
Join change management experts, Tracy Balash and Ayako Ohtake for an intensive, one-hour webinar on managing office dynamics as teams head back to the office. Tracy and Ayako will share the three secrets to thriving through change.
Because change is hard, and your enhanced leadership can smooth the transition
As businesses begin the transition back to in person work – whether full time or a hybrid work model where employees work remotely two to three days a week – we know many are likely to experience loss, anxiety, and uncertainty around these new arrangements.
Tracy and Ayako will walk you through the difference between intentional and imposed change. They’ll outline the human biological response to change when the change is not clearly defined, and they’ll help you identify and implement ways to support your employees as they transition to in-person work.

As a change management professional, Ayako was an integral part of our success on a recent project. This was a new and bold initiative, in Canada, let alone for Strathcona County. Our culture was certainly anxious and perhaps even skeptical to begin. Ayako worked closely with me and our project leads to apply wise practices, at just the right time, to move our culture to one that recognized the benefits and both embraced and experienced positive change.

The Secrets of Surviving and Thriving Through Change
As if the demands of life during COVID wasn’t challenging enough, the transition back to the office and a new normal may prove even more difficult. Employees will be looking for familiar routines that simply won’t be there. Your role as the team leader is uniquely important in helping others survive the change.
In this exclusive webinar, Tracy Balash and Ayako Ohtake share the secrets they’ve learned over 20 years as change management professionals. They’ll help you engage your employees, smooth the back to the office transition and manage the challenges that inevitably come with change.
Recognize the triggers of the flight or fight response
Humans are hard-wired to avoid threats and seek safety and reward. Change creates uncertainty and triggers a threat response. Unresolved threats reduce our capacity to think logically, and destructive behaviours threaten a productive workplace.
Identify the loss and discuss the impact
We tend to focus on the positive aspects of organizational change, but it is important to acknowledge what people are losing. Naming loss helps people feel like they’re not alone, especially if we provide space for people to talk about what they’re losing.
Communicate, communicate, and communicate some more
Senior leaders and managers must be active communicators in organizational change efforts. We’ll share what important information employees need to have to adapt to change.
