    Professional Resilience: Building a Foundation to Navigate Stress at Work

    Resilience is our ability to bounce back from challenging or stressful situations.  Resilience can erode over time as we face challenging business environments, difficult personalities, even abusive or toxic workplaces.  One way to ensure you can be at your best at work is to build your professional resilience.  Having a strong level of resilience won’t eliminate your stress completely, but it can help you successfully navigate the everyday challenges and stress you face every day.  Resilience can be built over time with intentional practice.  During this session you will build a personal plan for building your professional resilience.   

    Learning Objectives:

    • Participants will be able to define resilience and describe resilience’s role in stress management.
    • Participants will be able to explain why resilience is important for success as professionals and how quickly resilience can erode in today’s workplaces.

    • Participants will create a professional resilience plan to maintain or build a strong level of professional resilience.

    Dawn is most well known regionally for her presentations on building trust in the workplace.  When she recently discovered the concept of professional resilience, she immediately found a connection to her trust work – specifically with betrayal.  The work done to build resilience can also be used after a betrayal.  Resilience exercises provide additional tools to help a professional feel stronger and more confident in the face of stress.      

    Dawn holds a B.A. in Psychology along with an MBA and a Master of Arts in Management (MAM) all from The College of St. Scholastica.  In addition to her formal education, she is certified in a variety of tools and assessments including InsideOut Coaching, Appreciation at Work, the Strengths Deployment Inventory, and the Clark Wilson 360 assessment.

    Was it worth it? Demonstrating the impact and value of training programs through evaluation.

    Imagine you implemented a high cost, high visibility training program and your boss or client asks you, “What difference did it make and was it worth it” 
    Our leaders and clients expect evaluation data that goes beyond reaction and learning.  They need to know what difference our programs made and if they were worth it. 
    This interactive session is based on the Phillips and Phillips’ return on investment evaluation model, and participants will learn how to answer these questions.  We will discuss the rationale for higher-level evaluation, and participants will have the opportunity to practice skills such as identifying impact measures, isolating program impact, and calculating return on investment. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Determine the organization's impact and ROI needs and objectives. Participants can apply this learning to set an appropriate ROI objective, determine ROI objective feasibility, and identify appropriate tangible and intangible impact measures.

    • Identify and implement the most credible and feasible isolation method.  Participants can apply this learning to credibly estimate the program's impact.

    • Estimate the program’s benefit to cost ratio and return on investment.  Participants can apply this learning to demonstrate the value of a program's impact and ROI to senior leaders.
