Building Resilient Teams

Your team’s foundation is shaken. The last few years have brought new levels of stress, fear, and workload to your team. So how do you build a stronger team that completes projects at the highest level? You start with a remodeling project! First, we look at the effects of the mental and physical exhaustion that can undermine your team's effectiveness. Acknowledging this stress, not only personally but for your team gives a foundation to start building. In any good building project, we will grab the right tools to build back up. The tools used in this remodeling project include: Effective Communication, Clear Goals and Celebrating Accomplishments. Using interactive exercises, storytelling, and a bit of humor Kathy will give your team critical insights on how to begin the building project. 

Loaded with their assessment, tools and mindset shift, participants build their individual and team resilience. Stress, workload and fear may be with us, but building each other up and finding ways to encourage high levels of commitment to their teams is the outcome of this session.

Learning Objectives:

1.Identify the disruptions that are affecting themselves and their team by examining both mental and physical burnout.

2.Learn the three critical tools needed to care for each other and build stronger, resilient teams.

3.Understand how to create a resilient mindset for disruption and change to aid in flexibility for future disruptive events.

Registration closes at 5pm on April 10.
