What you will learn:

The last two years have been hard – maybe harder than any other time in our careers and lives. For many of us, it’s been difficult to show up to work every day (even virtually), challenging to stay engaged, and, at times, impossible to feel positive. And yet, we know that emotions are contagious – especially negative ones. So how you can stay upbeat and hopeful at work in the face of workforce shortages, supply-chain challenges, back-to-office changes, burnout, complaints, unpredictability, negativity, pessimism and so much more? This interactive workshop will give you the tools you need to stay above the fray, without ignoring, denying, or suppressing your own feelings.

Participants will learn:
  • Four new ways of thinking and acting that can shift them from hopeless to hopeful
  • How to make strategic decisions about what they can control and what they can’t
  • Specific language to make positive requests that are more likely to yield results from overwhelmed co-workers
  • The six elements that can infuse your workplace with more positivity, connection, and trust
  • Three questions that they can ask themselves and their colleagues every day to help focus on the future, rather than the past
