Lead with Listening to Navigate the Ongoing Uncertainty

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Future Workplace Webinars
By: Andrew Shatte, Co-founder, Chief Science Officer, meQuilibrium and Jeanne Meister, Executive Vice President, Executive Networks, and Founder, Future Workplace Academy

We’re in the midst of a mass trauma event defined by uncertainty. This has left many unsure of what to do next to navigate the mounting stress and anxieties.

Individuals, teams, and leaders are taxed with keeping up with what’s taking place now and what’s needed next. How does this take a toll in the way we perceive our purpose? Science has proven that when individuals are stressed, empathy decreases and anxiety increases.

These behaviors often result in a fixed mindset, making everyone averse to the concept of change and unable to focus, absorb, and move forward; they’re unable to learn. A resilient mind, in comparison to a fixed mind, is open to learning, adaptable to change, and agile in the face of stress.

Join Jeanne, founder of Future Workplace, as she sits down with Dr. Andrew Shatté, resilience expert and Chief Science Officer at meQuilibrium. In this discussion, you’ll learn the tools and techniques proven to better manage emotional reactions and deep-seated thinking styles so that they can more easily move from stress reactions to productive, rewarding action.

Learning goals:

  • Learn how to support people, across your organization, with years of proven data, psychology, and neuroscience.
  • Discover how specific thinking traps and emotions impact your organization and how to assess it in a meaningful way.
  • See the way forward, with practical ways to apply organizational resilience to move a workforce from reaction to action
