Lifeworks’ May Webinars

Friday, May 12, 2023 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm CST  Managing Fear and Anxiety

Fears and anxieties are made up of thoughts that are based upon either personal experiences or beliefs. Pretending that these fears and anxieties do not exist, or are not as bad as they seem, can actually make them worse. In this class, we will learn how to talk through our thoughts to realize that our fears and anxieties are manageable and controllable.

Friday, May 26, 2023 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm CST  Resilient Leadership

As we reflect on the impact of the past few years, this is the time to take steps to build your resiliency and move forward. In this session, we will help you to re-focus on key components of leadership so that you can demonstrate resiliency and support your employees and colleagues in doing the same.
