About the ION Talks

The ION Talks are three short videos produced to inform and support the partners in the workforce system as they manage the changes required by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). They are designed to provide both insights and strategies for understanding individual and organizational reactions to change. 

The ION Talks are designed to provoke thought, discussion, planning, and action for the process of managing change. Each video has an accompanying discussion guide that outlines the video’s focus, poses discussion questions, and asks participants to plan action steps for change implementation.

Change is Constant – Individual Resiliency

Change is constant in our work and personal lives. How we adopt and cope with change is both an involuntary and learned response. WIOA is requiring change on many levels – maybe your role, the programs you manage, or your relationships with partners. Your role may also be to support how others manage change. This ION Talk on Individual Resiliency will explore the individual factors that impact how we cope with and effectively manage change.
