Do You Have A Stress Management Game Plan?

It is hard to believe that it will be a year since all of our lives were abruptly turned on their heads due to COVID-19.  Despite how long it's been, for many, the stress of it all hasn't let up. It can continue to be an ongoing challenge to keep work life separate from personal life, especially when, for many, everyone in your household is home ALL the time.  Add to it the juggling of changing routines, not seeing co-workers or friends and family, and managing kids home from school.   All these unprecedented changes and challenges can certainly take a toll on your mental health. In this webinar, Dr. Stacey Lessans will teach you coping methods and strategies to help you develop a Game Plan to manage your stress during these tumultuous times. This is an exclusive Webinar and no recording will be provided.

In this installment of our Alumni Speaker Series not only are we celebrating Women's Month, but we are proud to feature alumnae Missy Dunlop '19TCB '20MBA and Christina Heiser '10C. 

It is hard to believe that we have made it to 2021. Although we may still be stuck at home, let's take this time to continue to stay focused, motivated, and put ourselves first. With most of us working home due to COVID, it has only become more challenging to avoid working all day and knowing when to step away from the computer. In this session, we will chat about how to master your work-life balance and prioritize your happiness. Missy and Christina will be sharing their tips and tricks to help combat stress, navigate the job market, and how to set both career and personal goals.
