During this uncertain time we might feel that many things are out of our control. Since there are no answers to some questions our anxious mind might focus on the worst case scenario.Through this workshop we will work towards identifying some of our anxious thoughts and how it impacts our daily lives. We will also cover some strategies that can be helpful to reduce these anxious thoughts. As a group we will practice some ways to unhook from unhelpful thoughts so they have less power over our lives. We will also cover strategies that can motivate us to do our tasks during this pandemic. We will include an activity that helps us journal our thoughts. This process of journaling will help us explore and reflect on our experience more deeply.

This session focuses on the mindsets, inner-resources, and skills that leaders need to enact transformative leadership focused on equity, relational trust, and wellbeing in this time of radical flux. What is required of leaders now requires that they cultivate a radical growth mindset for crisis leadership and equitable organizational development. This helps leaders foster the conditions to identify and address current struggles as living texts that advocate for critical intersectional inclusivity and racial justice in and beyond education.

This pandemic might have resulted in us being on zoom for several hours a day taking classes or doing meetings. Through this workshop we will look at ways on how our online work might affect us physically and mentally. We will look at strategies that might help us manage our online meetings with other activities that help us take a break. We will look at ways we can incorporate some healthy activities during the day so that our virtual commitments do not take a toll on our health. Through our group discussion we will look at coping strategies that we can adopt that might benefit us in this new virtual system.
