Too often, the fire that fuels those of us working in the social sector ends up becoming the fire that burns us out. Across the nonprofit world, organizations are perpetuating unhealthy work cultures, getting mired in conflict and divisions, and struggling to respond to systemic issues proactively instead of reactively. Nonprofit staff often end up feeling anxiety and hopelessness, working ineffectively in their teams, and traveling on the path to burnout. This live, online training will enable you to cultivate resilience-based practices in your own lives and in your organizations, to create a culture of sustainable activism. In the session, you will be guided through an assessment of your individual, team, and organizational resilience. You will learn how to develop effective methods of self and collective care, understand how stress and trauma impact individuals and teams, and learn strategies to cultivate stronger team communication to address conflicts and resolve tensions.
