LIVE EVENT OVERVIEW:
Step into your capacity to remain resilient, healthy, creative, and engaged in the midst of COVID-19
A Resilient Mindset. As healthcare professionals, our relationships with patients and their families form the foundation for healing and wellness. At this moment in time, our ability to care and connect is challenged by the Coronavirus crisis, the difficulties presented by a lack of resources, first responders, and healthcare providers coupled with the fears associated with the pandemic.
Being on the frontline of COVID-19 is influencing our ability to respond with continued care, compassion, and connection and may well impede our ability to be creative and make the best decisions. In this time of crisis, resiliency, wellbeing, and the ability to stay creatively engaged is absolutely essential.
This series of free videos and live practical application call are grounded in Appreciative Inquiry. Appreciative Inquiry is one of the most effective and widely used approaches for building resiliency and it can dramatically improve the outcomes of your situations. It will empower participants to choose a resilient mindset and use two simple practices to support connection, creativity, and positivity in the midst of COVID-19. These two practices allow us to foster conversations worth having anytime, anywhere, and in any situation.
You will walk away prepared to:
- Interrupt and shift your mindset to foster resilience and positivity;
- Fuel productive and meaningful engagement;
- Communicate effectively with patients, families, and colleagues;
- Ask questions that communicate care and deepen connection; and
- Frame complex problems to inspire creativity and innovative solutions.
