TechConnex: Resilient Wellbeing – Living with Uncertainty
May 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Feeling overwhelmed at times, and faced with worries about where all this could go? Have you observed associates, family, or friends who are expressing a high level of anxiety? Targeted at putting you in the driver’s seat to learn and grow strong through this challenging time, our workshop, presented by Danielle Besseling and Peter Meyers, provides four accessible strategies to move you from worry to wellbeing. In addition, we cover ways to productively support others who are experiencing the kind of worry that gets in the way of living the life we want.
