Leading teams during times of crisis can be an enormous challenge and an unexpected opportunity. Supporting staff to deliver their best possible work means - just like in-person - offering informational, resource, and emotional support. Predictably, there will be some roadblocks, so the question is how can you actively guide your team in building their resilience to bounce back from stress and move forward with renewed energy and agency?
Join us online for this two-hour experiential training where you will engage with the four components of resilience to protect and promote your own and your team’s well-being:
- Active coping that employs specific individual strategies that work for you to develop solutions
- Building strength by focusing on your unique skillsets
- Cognitive awareness to recognize automatic thinking and reframe your perspective to help you interrupt negative thoughts when they start to occur
- Social support to identify, nurture, and call on your lifelines and offer support to others.
The ABCS© model is an ideal approach to guide your team through difficult transitions while maintaining a productive mindset.
