WEBINAR: Coronavirus - Leading For Resilience in Times of Crisis
Thursday, April 9, 2020
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ESTResilience is an amazing skill that helps us respond productively to difficulty.
Unlike some skills---like a positive attitude---that can be developed in good times and/or bad times; resilience develops in response to challenges that we confront. Much like muscles that need to be challenged to grow, our resilience skills and resources expand in the face of adversity. The trick is recognizing and leveraging that truth. While we don't ask for a crisis like we're experiencing right now with COVID-19, every crisis presents an opportunity to endure, persevere, and grow. In this session, we'll explore what the sciences of Positive Psychology and Positive Organizational Scholarship have to share about leading for resilience in times of crisis. As an attendee, you will be empowered with a set of evidence-based practices and tools to elevate the best in yourself and your team during a difficult time so that together you may face the challenge productively.
Guest Speaker: Josh Vaisman
Josh has been a proud member of the veterinary community since 1995. In 2009, he leaped into practice management and ownership and continued in those roles in two small-animal hospitals until 2018. A lifetime optimist and overall “happy guy,” Josh was shocked to find himself feeling spent, alone, and crying over breakfast while his surprised wife looked on with disbelief. Recognizing he had burnt himself out, he made the difficult decision to step away and recapture his authentic self. Since then, he’s dedicated his professional trajectory to elevating veterinary staff and teams so they can authentically flourish in their work. To that end, he’s obtained certificates in areas such as Positive Psychology, Workplace Culture, and Building Effective Teams and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. He co-founded Flourish Veterinary Consulting LLC to bring the knowledge he's obtained to life.
