How Are We Doing? Staying Resilient During These Unsettled Times

As we move into the "next normal" of the pandemic, many people are describing an accumulation of intense emotional and physical exhaustion. Recent surveys of the impact of the past year on individuals, suggests that this wear and tear is directly related to the increase in the volume and complexity of our work as well as a result of having had to juggle constantly changing pandemic restrictions, family and intense work pressures.

It is critical that HR leaders become aware of the toll that COVID-19 is having on their workforce, but in order to help others navigate this pandemic, we need to first take stock of how we are  doing and ensure that we are caring for ourselves in order to meet these challenges. 
In this session, you will discover:

  • The Stress Continuum, now used by many healthcare and business organizations (adapted from the Canadian and US Military) can help you identify early signs of stress reactions in yourself and others. It is a model for both short-term recovery and longer-term resilience.
  • The Rest Model to increase personal resilience. It can be hard to do your job well and help others if your own need for rest is ignored. The REST model is a simple tool to increase your resilience and helps support healthy boundaries and the development of resilience through purpose, connection and hope.
  • Clinically proven strategies, habits and microskills that can be used both personally and professionally to help build greater resilience.
