Building Resilience in the Workplace and During the Job Hunt

May 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In this challenging environment, it’s difficult to  feel motivated and connected; however, there are techniques that can help you build resilience in the workplace, whether remote or in person, and during the job hunt. In fact, these skills can be used in almost any stressful situation. Please join us for a session on building resiliency with Dr. Michael Gotlib, Psy. D., Clinical Psychologist and Organizational Wellness Facilitator. Michael’s Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) training approach leads to increased mindfulness and/or psychological flexibility, which has been found to:

  • Improve focus and productivity by helping people concentrate on tasks for longer periods of time and reduce anxiety.
  • Increase the salience of tasks by linking them explicitly to goals, behaviors and values, thereby increasing motivation and enhancing creativity.
  • Improve mental health and work performance, including learning and innovation.
  • Help people to recognize when to persist and when to change behavior, rather than being stuck in ineffective patterns of behavior.
  • Help manage thoughts and emotions more effectively leading to increased resilience.
  • Increase employees perceived levels of job control and this led to improvements in absence rates and general mental health.
  • Positively correlated with outcomes measuring job performance and satisfaction over a 1-year interval.
