Overcoming Overwhelm: A 3-Step Model for Bouncing Back

With so much going on in our lives and in the world around us, it can be a challenge to know how to respond when everything seems too much. Decades of research on stress and resilience reveal simple approaches that have been repeatedly proven to improve coping, wellbeing and overall life satisfaction. These tactics can help us move from high emotion to thoughtful action more quickly and make space for us to “reflect, reimagine, and emerge stronger.”

In this session, we will provide a short primer on what happens when we feel overwhelmed and teach participants our 3-step resiliency model for bouncing back, including

1.       The science behind stress reactions
2.       Common causes of workplace overwhelm
3.       How to recognize when you are in overwhelm
4.       3-steps to take that will help you move forward 

As a result, you will have new tools you can turn to quickly no matter what challenges you face.
