A global pandemic, natural disasters, new ways of doing business, and other unforeseen events have disrupted almost every aspect of our regular lives this year. Building resilience during these stressful events is of the upmost important… but sometimes it’s just so difficult to do.
Resilience, by definition, is “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.”
The current pandemic has led most people to feeling high levels of anxiety, depression, fear, and worry – all of which are normal responses to such circumstances. As new challenges are thrown at us every day, we must move towards a mindset focused on resilience, learn to find new opportunities in the chaos, and take control to find personal courage.
Designed for a variety of audiences, our speakers deliver virtual sessions that bring inspiration, clarity, and real-world solutions to leaders and teams.
Simple gestures of empathy, concern, and compassion go a long way – and make us feel more connected. Colette Carlson’s program Stress Less teaches the importance of building a positive mindset to create mental toughness and how to beat the stress of everyday life in healthy ways. When we feel more connected to those we work and interact with, we feel calmer and more supported. Creating the focus, energy, and mindset necessary to make compassionate, warm interactions helps us stay connected to those who count while feeling less stressed.
Colette’s new virtual-only programs specifically address the challenges of working virtually. Designed specifically for leaders and teams working remotely, she provides specific techniques to connect and communicate on a deeper level to form crucial relationships that drive productivity, engagement, and collaboration.
It’s one thing to figure out the digital infrastructure needed to maintain communication and productivity, but it’s another thing to maximize interactions in a way that leave everyone feeling seen and supported.
And just because you are working apart (remotely), does not mean you have to feel alone. Shasta Nelson’s new virtual program, Apart, But Not Alone teaches leaders and teams how to feel supported and connected, while facilitating meaningful interactions that increase resiliency hope, and compassion. A notable expert on fostering healthy relationships in the workplace, Shasta inspires and teaches how to create a sense of belonging when distance separates us.
The realities of the current pandemic have created new and unfamiliar stressors for us all. Interactions are more challenging, parents are juggling working from home while also helping their children navigate remote learning, and there are new ways of doing business.
Research shows that 83% of the time, people can effectively manage relationships and tasks. However, in those 17% moments – when interactions become more challenging and work becomes more difficult – people discover the hard truth of whether or not they are able to continue to operate at their full potential.
Steve Gutzler’s program Full Potential helps teams learn how to avoid self-sabotage and burnout through the science of emotional intelligence. Steve provides practical takeaways on how to self-manage those 17% moments and create stress-resiliency tactics for sustainable success.
In this globally unprecedented time for all businesses, we must provide new strategies for employees that eliminate pressure and panic by learning how to take control, feel supported, and connect in new ways.
