Hope-Forward: Steadying Our Steps After a Challenging Season
Our way of life has radically shifted. As the world prepares to awaken, people are left at varying degrees of readiness. Some are nervous while others eagerly await returning to the rhythms and routines of their lives. As humans we are hardwired for struggle. We have adapted and found innovative ways of showing up the best we can during this challenging season. We've persisted despite the hardships and changes. Yet for many, it came at a cost. Organizations and their teams are tired, depleted, and wobbly, yet it is time we move forward.
In this season of rising after challenging times, we are in a precious place of opportunity to co-create our future. As we plan our next moves, it is imperative that we acknowledge the past while also setting a steady course for re-entry that is research informed and practical for people at varying degrees of readiness. In this presentation, Dr. Robyne will explore her conceptual framework for re-entry readiness that is based on the principles of psychological safety, resiliency, wellness, and productivity with purpose.
