In the current environment, we’re facing multiple crises at once… The COVID-19 pandemic. Social injustice and prolonged protests against these injustices. Natural disasters. Financial stress causing furloughs, layoffs and budget cuts. And, the next crisis is just around the corner.

It’s been months of dealing with the change and the uncertainty of the "new normal." You’re feeling the effects… Stress that makes it difficult to shift psychologically, emotionally, and productively.

With all hands are on deck to address the most pressing issues, you feel like there’s hardly any time to think about or work on your career. And, with so much out of your control, you’re concerned about your organization and even your job. Talent development professionals can feel especially vulnerable working in what some may consider non-essential positions.

What steps should you be taking to build your career resilience?

Based on her upcoming book, Resilience Ready: The Leader’s Guide to Thriving Through Unrelenting Crises, join Vivian Blade for this hands-on, skill-building program, where she will unpack: 

  • 3 ways the recent crises are changing careers and career management
  • 3 fears about your career and how to put them in perspective 
  • 5 Resilience Ready Principles and strategies to strengthen your Career Resilience
