Facing Adversity: Building resilience when times are tough

Hosted by: Ellen Jackon - Potential Psychology

COVID-19 is presenting unprecedented challenge and uncertainty to our businesses and business people. Humans don't cope well with uncertainty. It sends us into a tailspin of worry and 'what ifs.' It can affect our sleep, our mood and our ability to plan and problem solve - right when we need these skills the most.

In this short online workshop psychologist (and small business owner) Ellen Jackson will help you to prepare yourself for whatever comes so that you are in the best head space to help your business, your team, your family and our community.

Join us to learn:

  • How the brain responds to uncertainty and drives unhelpful behaviour
  • What we can control and what we can't - and why focusing on the wrong thing is more trouble than it's worth
  • Five free, simple activities for maintaining calm, building emotional resilience and keeping us in the best shape to help others.
