Stress Resilience, Mattering, and a Shift in Mindset: An Uplifting Conversation to Start the New Year

Program: This resilience-informed conversation will provide practitioners with new insights on how to increase well-being and transform cultures--even in the midst of adversity. Personal and collective well-being can be learned and cultivated. Our conversation will begin with befriending our nervous system and becoming polyvagal-informed. We’ll explore the importance of mattering using a conceptual model from the research. Our conversation will conclude with looking beyond ourselves through the lens of an outward mindset. New science, skillsets, and resources will be provided. The collective wisdom of the group will also be harnessed. As Christina Bethell at Johns Hopkins says, “We are the medicine.” Together, let’s engage in transformative learning in preparation for building caring and sustainable cultures in 2022 and beyond.

    ATD Capability ModelThe presentation supports the “Building Personal Capability” and “Impacting Organizational Capability” elements of the ATD Capability Model, helping practitioners to stay current on new knowledge and skills to create, innovate, and lead change. Practitioners will be invited to be future oriented with readiness to address stressful impacts of continued coronavirus and climate disruptions. Lifelong learning and the necessity for deeper, broader, capacity-building education will be highlighted. The content has applications for organizational development and culture change.
