Enhancing Resilience for Educators Returning to Work
With the current pandemic, our upcoming return to school has never been more complicated. Educators are having to reimagine schooling as they tackle questions of health and safety, remote learning and parental dynamics, all while still teaching. This session will explore strategies for managing stress in the new educational environment, understanding how stress works and enhancing resilience in the context of extraordinary change.

Respect in the Post-COVID Workplace: No Better Time for the Golden Rule
You’re back at work and a co-worker you’ve addressed before suddenly approaches you, without a mask, barking about a project. Sound unsettling? Respect has always been important at work, but the post-COVID workplace will require that we be mindful of boundaries and personal space like never before. Differences around employees’ comfort levels, tolerances and rule-following will vary greatly, requiring that we also accept differences, communicate effectively and put the Golden Rule into practice in order to create the psychological safety we need.
