The 2019 Resilience at Work Conference
About This Conference
Resilience is the ability of individuals and teams to experience well-being while learning from and adapting to change, adversity, setbacks, and new market demands which are inherent in organizations responding to diverse social and economic environments. Rapid changes and volatility are the norm in work environments, therefore, resilient mindsets support individuals to navigate those changes and experience both improved individual well-being and performance, and improved business performance.
Some of the topics to be covered include (partial listing):
Resiliency: Me to We
This session details what Bill Jensen has learned about personal resiliency during behind-closed-doors coaching sessions with senior executives. One CEO recently said that leadership today is “relearning being human.” Having that kind conversation takes a courage — brave enough to start, and stick with, a conversation that truly matters. In this session you will learn about how leaders dive deeper into their personal resiliency journeys and then translate that into team journeys.
Resilience Through Crisis: Leading Through Your Organization's Greatest Challenge
Facing threats from natural disasters to cyberattacks to active shooters to egregious misbehavior, today's managers are more likely than ever to face a true crisis. It is a make-or-break "you're It" moment calling for team as well as individual resilience. Drawing upon more than 15 years of field research and case studies, Eric McNulty will share insights and practical tools from his work with leaders from major corporations and government agencies to foster their personal crisis leadership capabilities as well as those of crisis management teams around the world. You will learn about approaches and tools for creating unity of effort, making crucial decisions, and taking effective action in the midst of high-pressure, high-stakes situations.
Changing the change: Driving Changes to Well-being and Resilience by Engaging with People and Data
Resilience is part of an overall well-being framework. This session will present a story of well-being in a global organization and what that means in terms of individual and team resilience behavior and outcomes. How are socio-emotional dimensions of health drivers for changing team dynamics and resilience? What has a sense of purpose to do with improved well-being and better decision-making? What data do you have in your organization to help you understand risks and potential for improved outcomes in well-being and business performance? How do people want to be engaged with in order to learn from their own well-being data? In this session, you will learn about approaches and practices for driving change as an organizational goal and in a way that improves resilience and well-being for individuals and teams.
Building Behavioral Health in the Construction Industry: A Model for Optimal Workplace Resilience
A national poll of U.S. employees found that 76% of employees struggled with at least one issue that affected their mental health. Behavioral health problems, including substance abuse, can harm employee performance and wellbeing in significant ways. Absenteeism, presenteeism, poor productivity and workplace injuries impact company morale and profits. In the construction industry, the risks are far greater; a recent study, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 20% of all men who died by suicide in the United States were in the construction/extraction industry. In this session you will learn about a comprehensive plan designed and implemented for Turner Construction, a leader in the field, to better condition their work force through behavioral health education, awareness, and support. The goal is to create an optimal mindset in the workplace in order to increase help seeking and reduce opioid abuse and suicide risk. The session will review effective strategies to reduce mental health stigma; the role of leaders, managers and team members in building a culture of resilience and support; use of peer-to-peer training; effective education and programming in the areas of depression, anxiety, substance and alcohol abuse, and gambling; and online mental health screening.
Seeding the Organizational Culture of Resilience: C-Suite-Level Health & Well-being Strategy
Resilience training is part of an overall organizational culture shift from healthcare and benefits to a broader frame of health and well-being. How do C-Suite leaders leverage health and well-being strategy to support individuals, business performance, and the success of the organization’s products? Why should resilience capability be viewed from an overall organizational health and well-being strategy? What are the risks and benefits of a resilience training initiative? Based on long-term practice and data-driven decision-making and strategy, experts will share practical approaches for understanding and responding to well-being and resilience hot spots in the organization. You will learn approaches for visioning and evolving health, well-being, and resilience capabilities of individuals and management teams.
See the Big Well-being Picture: Executing on Well-being Strategy and Mindful Leadership
What is are the risks and benefits of an organizational well-being strategy, and how does Resilience fit as a part of a broad well-being strategy? What are the potential risks and benefits? What is mindful leadership look like in practice and why is mindful leadership relevant and urgent for organizations? How does well-being strategy and mindful leadership support individuals to learn and practice resilience, and to promote biopsychosocial healing?
