About This Event

School of Leadership Studies Alumni Webinar Series

The Covid Pandemic has presented a challenge that everyone has had to navigate. For many of us, coping skills have ceased to be effective and it has been a struggle to discover new methods for managing stress, staying healthy and finding balance. In addition, many have discovered either a need or an opportunity to experience a reinvention of a career path - or even their own identity.

This webinar provides an opportunity to reflect on our experiences from a coping perspective, a map to help navigate the very disruptive world-wide pandemic, and methods for motivating ourselves to explore possibilities with new eyes. Panelists offer methods for experiencing a shift from hopelessness, fear and confusion, to curiosity, adaptability and hope.
