If there is anything the Covid crisis has taught us it’s that “EQ”– Emotional Intelligence – is rapidly surpassing “IQ” as the criteria for success as a leader. And now, leaders have one more responsibility on their job description: mental health.

Who better to rise to the occasion of the leadership we need now, than women?

Empathy, compassion, vulnerability, courage, communication, humility, positivity, listening, balance and even the ability to practice self-care – are just some of the skills that are clearly needed moving forward. And these are only some of the skills that women bring to the workplace!

Our brains are structured differently and help us see more holistically. Our intuition, especially when nurtured, helps us respond rather than react. We naturally are better at managing multiple priorities and excel in managing diverse needs of different personalities!

Emotions are at the fundamental core of motivation, they direct and prioritize what we do and where we put our energy. Emotions are contagious, and women have the ability to create powerful positive emotional contagions at work!

It’s time to energize, elevate and empower our people to rise to the challenges of reimagining life after crisis. What better tools to use than the evidence based practices that have emerged from the “Science of Happiness”?

Resiliency through Needs Satisfaction in the Era of Coronavirus

Bookmark

Thursday, March 26 – 12 P.M. – 1 P.M. ET

Needs is the first step to “Dealing with Coronavirus: Cultivating Resilience”, because all our behaviors are geared toward the satisfaction of one or more needs. Do you know what are the needs that you are expecting to be met at home, with your family, at work and with your friends? Do you know to what degree you are currently meeting the needs of those around you? A successful and happy person is capable of finding a sustainable way to meet her needs and is also mindful and actively involved in helping others meet theirs. To increase resiliency, it is critical to formulate a need-satisfaction plan and monitor its progress consistently. As individuals our collective needs are met, the perception of life and work changes from “getting by” or “just a job” to a calling. The final goal of this workout is self-realization or the highest potential an individual can achieve. We will end the session with a Q&A.
