The Challenge of Change

July 18 - 12:00-1:00PM

Why is organizational change so hard? We’ll walk us through the reasons why it’s always been true that deep-level organizational change is hard, and explain why today’s environment of rapid generational and technological change has made it even more difficult. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible, though, and the first step is understanding the nature of how change is made in a dynamic world.

DREAM BIG: Stress Management - A Three Level Approach

August 23 - 6:15PM-7:30PM

In our culture, the standard plan for dealing with stress is to “shake it off” with an after-work yoga session or an early morning run. But this doesn’t work when the wave of stress coming at us every day is more like a tsunami. We need a better approach. As a part of the Dream Big Series, I’ll discuss how managing stress requires work on three different levels: prevention, resilience, healing. Join us for this free DreamBank presentation where we’ll explore the importance of emotional resilience and strong communities as shields against the impacts of stress, and a key technique for reducing the amount of stress flooding our minds and bodies. From there, we can create mindfulness practices that work for us (it’s not just about meditating in lotus position!) so that we can truly manage our stress.
