Why do some organizations and their leaders falter during times of uncertainty while others succeed in chaos and find ways to adapt?
At its core, successful change depends on whether your people, at all levels, can adapt to new ways of thinking and operating as well as whether teams and work groups can quickly adapt together.
Research has found that the single most important factor for adapting to change is the degree to which organizations and their leadership demonstrate resilience – the ability to absorb high levels of change and maintain their high levels of performance and wellbeing. When your workforce can overcome the ambiguity, anxiety and loss of control that accompany change, they will grow stronger, be more adaptable, and develop into more effective employees.
The focus of this webinar is to help people understand how change and uncertainty affects them as well as how to anticipate and adapt to the changes that are occurring today and in the future. It will provide them with stress management strategies in the workplace and useful methods to move from the fear and uncertainty zone to the learning and growth zone so that they can optimize their adaption to the very changing workplace and marketplace.
In the wake of this global pandemic we are reminded that change is ongoing, plans get unraveled, and expectations aren’t always met. As coronavirus updates dominate the news, many of us are facing disruptive changes we have never experienced — or even imagined.
For many, a plethora of distressing feelings have emerged: anxiety, worry, fear, frustration, sadness, anger, panic, helplessness, uncertainty, skepticism, confusion, stress, and even loss. And, of course, these feelings don’t just linger in the pit of our stomachs. They ripple out and impact how we behave, how we treat others, even how well we perform our jobs.
These are all valid and understandable responses to a disruptive event - such as a global pandemic — especially when elements of such an event are new, unknown, or unpredictable, and unclear.
The question is not how can we avoid difficulty and stress? That is nearly impossible to do. Rather, the question is: how do we face this crisis and recover from it? How do we find new footing in our work lives, social lives, and mental and physical health?
This webinar will help you with strategies for managing stress in the workplace, become more resilient and be more effective in your work and in your lives.
