About this Webinar

It has been over a year since the pandemic hit and we can’t help but reflect on the pain and anguish we’ve collectively suffered; life was already hard, and this pandemic year seemed to deal with some especially harsh blows. The term ‘Posttraumatic Growth’ describes a positive transformation following a traumatic experience in which “development, at least in some areas, has surpassed what was present before the struggle with crises occurred”.

Posttraumatic growth is not a guaranteed outcome of trauma; it’s not a goal and it doesn’t happen in everyone (more on this later). But people who experience posttraumatic growth may report having stronger or more meaningful social relationships after trauma. They may develop greater empathy and compassion for others. They may find deeper connections in spirituality or religion, or report having an enhanced sense of personal strength. They may come to see more, better, or new possibilities in life that they didn’t see before, or have a greater appreciation for life overall.

In this workshop, Terri and Matthew will look into:

  1. Leadership: Bring back that understanding of mental wellbeing and embed these practices in the company from the start.
  2. Discuss signs to understand when your mental wellness is at risk.
  3. Look into what red flags are in the current crisis and where to get help.

This workshop is part of the Prioritizing Mental Well-Being: A Workshop Series for Entrepreneurs. Recent studies show that 2/3 of entrepreneurs experience poor mental well-being. This can be anything from stress to burnout to breakdown. In this series, various speakers will showcase how you can support your own mental well-being, red flags along the way, share their own experiences, and equip you tangible steps.
