    HOW PLANNERS CAN THRIVE IN TIMES OF WORKPLACE CHANGE
    Location: Perth

    Planning reform, local government reform and State Government efficiency drives are all impacting on town planning practice inside and out of government. Doing more with less, confronting competing priorities and dealing with change - are challenges currently being faced by town planners on a daily basis.

    To survive and thrive in rapidly changing work places planners need to be resilient. They must develop a capacity to respond constructively to change, and learn to deal with uncertainties in order to be even stronger and more capable in the future. They also need to know that positively managing change may actually help them to move into new work opportunities.
