Associate Professor at Nova School of Business
When is this over? Will we ever go back to “normal”? What will be the new “normal”? Is there a future for my business? Again a new crisis… it felt we just came out of one! And this one seems to be even bigger, so they say. What about my family? What can I do to keep them safe? It is in these times that the human spirit is tested. We have resources and an ability to adapt which is often underestimated. This webinar is about the importance of perspective and reframing to be able to cope with even the most adverse situations. It is about how we can reframe what life brings to us from a perspective of meaning. To be in a place of choice where our life makes sense, even when what happens around us seems to make no sense. It is also about leadership and we can as leaders help others create meaning in this context. We will share some data as well on how meaning is perceived in this time of the COVID-19 crisis.
