The Aftershocks of COVID; The Ongoing Effects on Your Team

December 1, 6-7pm

Just when you thought things were going in a good direction. You managed to keep your business going through the struggles associated with the COVID pandemic. Then, just as you find yourself trying to shake off the stress from keeping your business afloat, you notice there are ongoing effects on your team.

COVID has had an unprecedented effect on our country, families and work environments. These effects have made it difficult to mitigate the state of fear created by COVID in which the worry of job loss due to risk of contracting COVID, shutdowns, layoffs and changes in business revenues are a daily struggle. Additionally, COVID has paved the way for increases in isolation, anxiety, depression, stress and conflict while also experiencing a decline in interpersonal connection and effective coping due to social distancing, masks and limited ability to engage in hobbies or activities. Now these effects are leading to increased tension and conflict in the workplace.

In these trying times we are finding ourselves in need of strategies and skills to keep our teams not only safe, but also engaged and comfortable in the work place. Through this presentation we hope to help you understand how stress/conflict not only effects your team, but also teach strategies to reduce stress and conflict in real time, as well as after the fact. 

Course Objectives:

  • Identify how COVID has and continues to affect your team.
  • Identify how the stress of COVID affects anxiety and depression.
  • Learn roles that team members take on during times of stress and conflict.
  • Learn strategies to alleviate stress and fear responses within your team.
  • Learn strategies to foster a more collaborative and healthy work environment.
