Resilience: A Must Have Skill for your Workforce


Free for Members, $20.00 for Guests

In our always connected, highly demanding work cultures, stress is widespread. In fact, the World Health Organization describes stress as the “global health epidemic of the 21st century”. Since the pace and intensity of work cultures are not likely to change, it’s more important than ever to help employees navigate their work life.  How do you teach employees to thrive through this high pressured, fast paced and continually changing environment? Teach them the skill of resilience. Resilience is the acquired ability to thrive in a fast paced, continually changing environment. Although some people tend to be more resilient than others, the skill of resilience can be learned.   At the end of the hour, the participant will be able to: Define resilience. Understand when it’s good to get out of your comfort zone and when it’s detrimental to performance. Identify the four dimensions of resilience.  If ready, commit to one small action step to increase personal resilience. 

Jen Arnold’s on a mission to change the common organizational approach to employee health and wellness. Jen believes in addressing not only the physical health of employees but also the mind and spirit. To do this, she started her own business and podcast, named Redesigning Wellness.   Jen is a Registered Dietitian by training and for the 13 years prior to starting her own business, she led organizational health and wellness efforts and advised employers how to start them. Most recently, she worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC for over 8 years leading a team of health promotion professionals.   Jen is a Tedx speaker who uses stories, activities and humor to not only make a point but to keep audiences engaged and listening. Attendees will leave with practical, applicable next steps to take with them beyond that session.  Jen lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband, two children and dog.
