Webinar Series: Adapt and Thrive
in Changing Times

We're living through strange times, indeed. We may be "in this together" but we've got to deal with the uncertainties and changes in our work and personal lives individually. The College of Continuing and Professional Studies is here to help.

Through this series of webinars, we aim to bring you practical advice on working remotely, coping with stress, and navigating conflict.

Master Your Strengths and Boost Resilience

June 17 | Noon–1 p.m.
Presented by Karin Goettsch

The uncertainty of sudden major crises, as well as smaller everyday setbacks, can test our resilience. Our transforming workplace will require us to pay more attention to our overall wellness and balance and that of our teams. In addition to prioritizing self-care, you can draw on a set of your best inner qualities as positive drivers to help guide you in challenging situations and create a more fulfilling work experience.
In this webinar, we will:

  • evaluate your resilience capability and some best practices for bouncing back.
  • introduce an evidence-based character strengths profile.
  • highlight how certain key character strengths linked to resilience can help you manage your reactions to the current pandemic.
  • explore how to tap into your unique signature strengths to present your authentic self with more confidence to accomplish your professional and personal goals.
