The COVID-19 pandemic triggered both a global health crisis and an economic crisis. These crises have generated an extraordinary level of uncertainty, creating another crippling crisis and a considerable threat to employee well-being—anxiety.
As of September 2020, according to the Center for Disease Control, 4 out of 10 Americans have a medically diagnosed case of anxiety—and think of how many more haven’t been diagnosed! The solution to this rising anxiety epidemic is to develop our resilience. In this podcast, Principal Researcher, Robin Erickson, PhD, and Distinguished Principal Research Fellow, Leo Flanagan, PhD, review their recently published report, COVID-19 Reset & Recovery: Developing Resilience to Move through Uncertainty to New Beginningswith information on why we become anxious and 12 practical recommendations for leaders and employees.
