Creating Opportunity in Adversity

Techniques to Create Innovation During Times of Change

“Crisis moments create opportunity.  Problems and crisis ignite our greatest creativity and thought leadership as it forces us to focus on things outside the norm.”
-Sam Cawthorn, Author and Entrepreneur

Change drives innovation, yet as individuals we still struggle to organize ourselves to capitalize on the opportunities that change and adversity provides.

Through these times of massive change, many want to leave aspects of their “old” life behind, yet lack a path to move forward with so many questions unanswered. People are feeling this in both their work and personal lives.

This course uses simple evidence-based concepts to use change and adversity as a springboard to plan the unknown on your own terms. Understand stress responses and uncover opportunities for resilience practices. Consider those things that you or your team are willing to leave behind post-COVID and new opportunities that should be incorporated.

As we move through this transition period, help ground yourself and your work in those things that can be controlled, while remaining open to the opportunities ahead of you.

This workshop is offered within organizations for groups of 5 people or more.
