    Working Alone Together: Building people and culture in times of fear, isolation, and uncertainty


    This time of unprecedented challenges is impacting the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of every employee. HR Professionals are also experiencing these same impacts, though we may push our needs aside in service to others. This comes at a high cost and misses the surprising opportunity to build up people and culture. In this experiential session, you will first participate in strategies to decrease your stress response and bring you into better neurophysiological regulation. Then you will learn the science behind the evidence-based practices and identify ways to integrate these into your daily HR responsibilities as well as overall team strategy.  


    Learning Objectives

    1. Learn the neurophysiology of fear that every team member is experiencing during the pandemic
    2. Experience and learn about six evidence-based practices to de-escalate stress and fear
    3. Apply those insights to the daily challenges of HR operations
