Resilience Booster Shot for HR Professionals
How to stay focused, energized and positive when managing a staff reduction or other challenge
Companies often invest in training to rebuild optimism, confidence and engagement for survivors of a downsizing, and these interventions are always delivered after the displacement event is over. Virtually no resources are devoted to bolstering the resilience of HR professionals tasked with the hands-on aspects of a downsizing before and during the event. Human Resources professionals tend to be highly empathetic and caring towards others, and in their drive to care for their colleagues, they often fail to take care of themselves first. This can (and often does) drain their resilience and reduce their effectiveness. In this 45-minute webinar, participants will learn concrete skills to help them feel better and do better in this difficult circumstance.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
Better understand how their thoughts drive their feelings and actions
Recognize that their thoughts are often not accurate, especially in the midst of adversity
Identify the one emotion that most interferes with their productivity
Learn the specific kind of thinking that leads to that disruptive emotion, and how to reduce the emotion by engaging their thinking
Identify at least one 'Iceberg Belief' that gets in their way
Learn a skill to melt or steer around the 'Iceberg,' leading to greater resilience and better results
Relate this learning to a specific workplace challenge
