Resilience in the Workplace

Resilience in the Workplace

The coronavirus pandemic is a crucible event, in which higher levels of resilience are required to support your ability to navigate uncertainty and change in the workplace. Learning more about your own resiliency and how you transmit that to others becomes a leadership imperative, as we all begin to plan how we return to work based on strategies being developed by leaders and their organizations.

The Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety is partnering with the Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking in the UW Foster School of Business on two courses focused on building greater resilence for safety professionals in the workplace. These two courses are focused on  increasing your ability to adapt to modern day unprecedented adversities and challenges which create fear, uncertainty, and stress in the workplace, which are detrimental to your well-being.

These courses and the lessons to be learned in them, are based on research conducted around the globe in a broad range of organizations and cultures. The expert instructor led sessions include participant break-out rooms to foster peer to peer interactions, short videos on key topics comprising the course, and a lot of skill building practice to transfer those lessons learned back to the workplace. Sessions are focused on promoting hope, efficacy, optimism, and well-being for individuals and organizations with the ultimate goal of fostering a higher degree of safety in the workplace.
