As we come to terms with an enforced change to our normal working life, it is important to build a new sense of community and share the tools and techniques that can support us all. Our self-determination is undermined as the three core human needs – feeling in control of our destiny, being competent to deal with life challenges, and able to enjoy meaningful connections with others – are severely challenged. As shock of self-isolating and lonely reality of social distancing sets in it is vital that we focus on building the inner strengths that can help us through these dark times.
Recently I conducted an hour-long webinar on the topic of Staying Positive & Growing Inner Strengths in Turbulent Times. The webinar is part of a new series run by the professional services group, PM Forum and the recording is now available for anyone to view.
During the webinar, I share a suite of techniques that can help you dial up your resilience, energise you and inject bursts of positivity into your day. In particular, I explore:
1. How to cope with the natural fears that arise during a turbulent time
2. Ways of dealing with excessive rumination and overthinking
3. Share practices that can grow the inner strengths we need to thrive
The 300 global participants voted on a top issue that they faced. Then I focused the second half of the webinar on strategies to deal with this. The top issue turned out to be:”I’d like to learn how to relax my mind and recharge my energy so that I feel more capable of coping.”
