Employees want to know how to be at their best during a stressful time. The coronavirus pandemic has created stress and anxiety that compromises employees’ and leaders’ well-being and job performance. In this webinar, Dr. Jamie Gruman will discuss his latest book called Boost, which focuses on how we can get back to our best by flipping our downtime into ‘Uptime’ to most successfully recharge our batteries and return to work happier, healthier, and more productive. He will present his ReNU model, which synthesizes the research behind Boosting, and will discuss specific activities we can implement to reduce our stress levels, manage our anxiety, and enhance our performance.
