As Canada and the world experience the global pandemic that is COVID-19, the word ‘unprecedented’ is continually used in conversations and coverage of this unfolding crisis.  The challenges government leaders and officials are facing are most certainly ‘unprecedented’, with high expectations from citizens, business, and media.

We are here to help you navigate through the crisis.

Build the Resiliency and Emotional Intelligence of Your Team

Leaders and teams from across Canada are facing a new work-from-home environment. The stress and challenge this puts on them can be extremely intense, especially for teams under pressure to deliver. We have two virtual training sessions that can help:

  1. Resiliency Mapping
    Get a handle on your stress points and start thinking about what needs to be done to improve your ability to deal with the day to day grind and the stress that goes with it. Easily measure the complex human factors that impact your resiliency and improve how you and your team manage stress in the workplace.

    You can learn more about this tool by clicking here or contacting us at learningcentre@iog.ca.
  2. EQ Mapping
    Develop and best use your emotional intelligence (EQ) as a key to accessing that untapped potential in yourself and your teams. EQ is the ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power acumen of emotions as a source of energy, information, creativity, trust, and connection.
