Resilience in the Workplace —How To Thrive in Changing Conditions

Amid major global and industry challenges, our daily routines have been significantly disrupted. Many of us have adapted to full-time telework for the first time while being isolated from co-workers, friends and family. To remain successful and continue to grow in our careers, it is not only important to find new ways to work and interact with others but also to take care of ourselves. Join us on this thought-provoking live cast to explore resilience in this unchartered work environment. Join us for this second episode of a 3-part SPE Live series, hosted by the SPE’s Business Management and Leadership Committee (BMLC).

This SPE Live is categorized under the Management technical discipline
