Handling Work and Career Stress in Turbulent Times

Handling Work and Career Stress in Turbulent Times
16 September

It's hard enough to get work done at the best of times. With the rate of change always increasing and markets getting more competitive and complex, it can be hard to keep up. Then add serious turbulence like the current Coronavirus pandemic, and you've got a recipe for high stress and low productivity.

How can you get through turbulence and come out stronger on the other side? In this webinar, we explore why uncertainty reduces our ability to make decisions and how you can work through turbulence and effectively communicate during a crisis, execute with precision and deal with stress.

During this hour-long session, you'll learn about:

  • Understanding your emotional response and using emotional intelligence to control your reactions
  • Dealing with cognitive bias like affective forecasting, loss aversion and confirmation bias; what they are and how they impact your view of the future
  • The fundamentals of adaptive leadership and how critical it is to lead and manage in volatility and uncertainty
  • Pragmatic techniques to work successfully during stress and turbulence
  • Science-based techniques to help “train your brain” to deal with challenges with face in difficult times utilising your highest level cognition.

This webinar can contribute to renewing your Scrum Alliance CSM or CSPO certifications or if you're working towards a PMI certification, you can gain 1 PDU just by watching.
