Navigating Turbulent Times: RESILIENCY in the face of change

Mental Health conditions are the leading cause of disability in the modern workplace. For many years it has been considered the cost of doing business. In 2017 it does not have to be so - there is reason to be optimistic that many interventions can have a positive impact on individuals and organizations. Dr. Jetly will outline some of the potential interventions that are used in organizations like the military that can easily be adapted. Education and training of individuals and leaders will be described. Individual resilience will be emphasized as the reality is that the modern workplace is stressful and enhanced coping skills will be part of the solution”

As leaders embark on turbulent times this session will provide an opportunity to recharge and rebuild on our own personal and professional resiliency to navigate these times and thrive in this changing environment.
