Workforce Resilience in Times of Adversity

April 6, 2022 - 5:00 to 6:30 pm
In Person at Blake Street Tavern

In today's challenging times, how do me make getting "Up for the Challenge" easier?

In this session, we will explore resilience in times of adversity, including:

  • the science behind wellbeing and performance under pressure, 
  • hard-won learning, 
  • simple strategies for connection, sparking wellbeing conversations, and supporting wellbeing and performance when the pressure is on. 

Learning and development professionals play a vital role in supporting an organization to be "up for the challenge" in challenging times. Explore simple methods for connection, sparking wellbeing conversations and supporting performance under pressure. And have some fun connecting with others along the way. 

This session will contain a mix of science, stories, practical activities, and connection.
