Create Team Engagement Amid Stressful Circumstances

During times of uncertainty and change, leaders are challenged to both inspire high-performance and encourage sustainable well-being for themselves and for their employees. This requires leaders to understand their own reactions to disruption and unexpected situations in order to adapt their approach to positively and effectively lead through the disruption. Leaders also need to pay attention to the causes and symptoms of stress in their team member’s lives to be able to apply appropriate strategies to help each team member regain a sense of control and balance.

After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand why it’s important for leaders to pay attention to the wellbeing and sense of balance in their team members.
  • Identify the different signs individuals in their teams may exhibit under stress.
  • Help their team members identify possible stress triggers and employ coaching strategies to help them turn pressure and tension into engagement and enthusiasm
