  • How to Be the Calm in the Storm During Emotionally Escalated Conversations (for Managers, HR Partners)
    November 8, 11 a.m. to noon (PT)

    We’ve all had that moment when we realize it’s about to get uncomfortable; we know we are in or about to get into a difficult conversation – maybe even a conflict. Each one of us has default and/or predictable and patterned ways of being in those moments and beyond. In this webinar presented by Carol Bowser, JD, you’ll learn to recognize your individual stress response style and cues so you can create a strategy that works for you rather than falling into your default behavior. You’ll learn to manage yourself under pressure as well as hold space for others who are also under pressure. Carol will share some of the common pitfalls many of us experience when situations are intense, and we will explore tools that can help avoid or mitigate the pitfalls and/or the consequences. We will discuss strategies that help you remain neutral. Get ready to have tools, language, and a framework to help you more elegantly navigate important conversations.

  • Sleep Skills for Travel
    November 9, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (PT)

    Travel is coming back in a big way, so it’s time to refresh your travel sleep skills so you can have a fabulous trip. Shifting our body clock doesn’t happen automatically, and can cause symptoms including digestive upset, daytime fatigue along with night time sleepiness, and irritability. Adding skills to help shift your body clock to the new time zone can make all the difference. Come learn from Dr. Catherine Darley, ND, how to prepare in advance of your trip, and what to do when you arrive. We’ll talk about strategies from light and dark exposure, timing of melatonin supplements, mealtimes and more.
