    Working Through Change

    Change is a constant in every workplace, especially now.  How can you help employees support new practices and develop a culture of innovation? 

    This workshop will give you solid tools for helping implement change – and a chance to practice them through coaching the Interactors, professional actors with special skills in creating engaging, hands-on workplace learning.

    About our Presenters:

    Dan Feldt

    An innovator in interactive training since 1986, Dan Feldt has developed many new approaches to bring hands-on practice to workplace learning.  Dan believes that the best learning comes from being in a committed group of co-learners, and that his greatest source of knowledge is listening and solving problems with his clients.  

    Beverly Felt 

    Beverly Feldt has written and facilitated hundreds of engaging and challenging programs for corporate learners.  She’s skilled in creating opportunities for participants to wrestle with difficult situations just like those they encounter in the workplace – but in a low-risk, lively environment. 

    Together they founded Workplace Interactors in 1998. They’ve helped leaders and workers from organizations including American Express, Johnson Controls, Navistar, and Northwestern University apply new skills and achieve success.  Frequent topics include customer service, ethics and compliance, diversity and inclusion, and stress management.


    Additionally, we are excited to announce we are Kicking off our Annual Holiday Donation Drive! This year, NISHRM has selected the Waukegan Township Staben House as our Non-profit to support this holiday season by providing "Welcome Home" baskets.

    More about The Staben House:

    The Waukegan Township Staben House provides transitional housing and community enrichment services to homeless women with children. They strive to provide comprehensive case management, budget management skills, and education to develop the necessary skills to succeed, break the cycle of homelessness and live independently. It is their belief that "The only way to empower a single mother who is homeless is to provide her and her children with the opportunity to gain skills and education." - (Patricia Jones, Waukegan Township Supervisor)
