Present this Special Workshop
If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that things in life are never certain—or at least never as certain as we’d like them to be. And while we can typically handle uncertainty when it comes along in small doses, the fear and anxiety which accompanies exceptionally disruptive events can leave us feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Enter mindfulness. In this program, Tara will introduce the fundamental principles and practices of mindfulness in clear, practical terms—describing how the brain’s built-in capacity for focus and clarity can be developed, and then utilized, in support of actionable tools and techniques for meeting the challenges of this unprecedented time, or of any time.
By integrating these techniques, they will assist in managing oneself as well as others in this time of unprecedented change. They will foster more effective communications and create an awareness of how the changes are impacting employees in the subtlest manner.
Participants will gain insight in
- Fundamental principles and practices of mindfulness
- Appreciating the value in employing the practices for oneself and also gain a better understanding of others.
- Understanding how to foster more effective communications
This webinar is pending approval for 1.5 SHRM PDCs and 1.5 HRCI credits.
