Voices in the Crowd- Successfully Managing Change in the Workplace

In Susan’s closing remarks for the event, she mentioned some takeaways that she had.  We need to take the wins we have when we can, embrace the why and celebrate change. Was there anything that struck you as applicable to your work or your experiences?

Lauren Axford, Executive Director at the Pine Hollow Arboretum

So much of what was said at today’s event really resonated with me, but there were 2  comments that I really identified with.  First, that change doesn’t happen overnight and that to get from point A to point Z, there may be several phases along the way.  The Pine Hollow Arboretum is 1 year deep into a major transition after losing our founder last January.  We have come a long way and there are many accomplishments to celebrate, but we still have a lot of work to do.  The second is that change in one’s personal life often prompts change in one’s professional life.  As a mother of 3 young children who works full-time, I am constantly trying to maintain that delicate balance between family life and professional life.  It was encouraging to me to realize that the equilibrium between my 2 worlds will be ever evolving and that down the road, new doors might open when the time is right.


Adam Migirditch, Membership Executive, Capital Region Chamber

The WBC event had a lot in it that I found applicable, both from a business and personal standpoint. With having started a new position here at the Capital Region Chamber and moving from Troy to Schenectady all in a matter of weeks, I’ve been dealing with plenty of change lately. I found the panel very insightful and the idea about celebrating change is something that really resonated with me. Overall great event.
