The Developing Leaders Series (DLS) was designed for the senior management in small-mid sized enterprises (SME) including not-for-profits. The series focuses on peer-based learning and training on the most important leadership competencies. Session #1: From Uncertainty to Hope: Keys for Adapting to a Changing Workplace (in a Pandemic) Being a manager during a pandemic is the ultimate test of your ability to adapt to the disruption of your workplace while supporting others. This interactive session will help you: - Build greater awareness of external and internal disruptions caused by a crisis/pandemic. Understand the neuroscience behind stress symptoms and their impact on behaviours. - Learn how to ‘put your own mask on first’ as a leader and support your adaptation and self-care. - Review the different phases of change and how you can help your teams adjust to losses, adapt to the ‘new normal’ and become re-engaged in your company’s mission. - Become sensitized to the importance of emotional safety in the workplace - what it is, why it’s important and how to create it, particularly in a pandemic when physical safety is absent. - Share practical tips to support a successful re-entry and best practices to foster team engagement and hope. This session will be led by Dominique Dennery and facilitated by Claude Haw."
