This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.

These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.

Even prior to the pandemic, overwhelm at work had become a pervasive issue. The pandemic only exacerbated the problem. The tidal wave of work and other demands coming at us is not likely to stop. To be sure, there are cultural and organizational issues that drive overload and need to be addressed. Nonetheless, there are things that we can do – and change – about how we behave and think that can give us a greater sense of agency and control, making us less likely to feel overwhelmed at work and prevent burnout in the longer-term.

Important Notes:
Our goal in Learning and Development is to create the same level of rich engagement in our virtual classroom as we do in our in-person classes. Therefore, the day of the session:

  • Ensure you’re in an environment that will allow you to participate fully! This will be an interactive session and your contribution is important.
  • Turn off your email and phone notifications to avoid distractions.
  • Be camera ready! Participants are expected to have their cameras on during the entire session.
  • Have a pen and paper ready.
  • Log in early to the session through the Zoom link.
