Part One 
Managing Change vs. Change Managing You 
Tuesday, Sept. 21, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

The old saying, the only constant is change, has never been more apparent than our life experience the past 18 months when the world seemingly felt upside down. It is understandable that many may still have lingering emotions, particularly as we begin the process of returning to our workplaces and finding our rhythm again. In this session, Sandra Bishop will discuss and engage you in practical skills to use when you're feeling like the world is falling apart. In addition, we will learn skills to help put loss in perspective when facing a changing environment. 

Part Two 
Emotional Resilience: From Stress to Success 
Tuesday, Sept. 28, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

Stress is a fact of life and, much like change, there is no escaping it. Many individuals cope with stress in ways that only compound the problem. There are also many healthy ways to manage and cope with stress. Emotional resiliency can be taught at any stage in life and empowers you to bounce back quicker from difficult situations or life events. This session, led by Kelsey Loushin, LICDC, CDP, will teach resiliency techniques to enhance work styles and the way you manage other day-to-day pressures and life events.
