HR leadership during a crisis:
How to remain personally resilient to lead your organization.

A #SmartTalkHR webinar with Lindsay Witcher and Emma Garrett

SmartTalkHR On-Demand Webinar

HR leaders face tremendous stress as they sort through the chaos created by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been more than a decade since the 2008 recession, and many HR professionals have not experienced the economic and emotional turbulence of major business disruptions.

Remaining resilient is key and is a skill that can be built. Taking care of others by sacrificing your own well-being is not sustainable. In order to be fully present to respond thoughtfully and efficiently to the needs of your workforce and the demands of your executive team, you first have to take care of yourself.

As an HR leader, you will benefit from taking time to re-evaluate approaches, shift gears as needed and develop sustainable strategies for helping yourself and the people you care for – employees, loved ones and friends.

Join Randstad RiseSmart’s Lindsay Witcher, VP of Practice Strategy, and Executive Career Coach Emma Garrett to learn how you can increase your effectiveness and resiliency, as well as that of others, during this crisis and beyond.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The value of practicing mindfulness and helping colleagues and employees do the same.
  • Strategies for how to be a lighthouse in a storm, including shifting your mindset, focusing on relationships to maintain drive and effectiveness, and creating a vision for how you want to be viewed by others.
  • Using this vision to reverse-engineer thoughts, actions and decisions that you will make to respond to business and workforce disruptions.
  • Tools used by Fortune 100 companies to promote employee well-being, and additional tools to help employees and company leaders shift their thought patterns, retain a sense of efficacy and creativity, and remain resilient

This webinar is approved for HRCI HR General Recertification credit hours and SHRM Professional Development Credits.
