New challenges arise with each new day as this pandemic continues to take its effect. From day one, our management at Central has been amazing at communicating their expectations for us and providing resources to help us through.
Our Vice President of Human Resources Ben Faurote regularly communicates with the entire company, reminding us of our priorities moving forward. First and foremost is our safety and well-being, and second is continuing to fulfill the promise as a company.
In his last e-mail, Ben shared some LinkedIn Learning resources that are available for free during this time: a video course Building Resilience and an audio course Subtle Shifts in Thinking for Tremendous Resilience.
According to LinkedIn, the video course addresses how, “Everyone wants to perform well when the pressure’s on, but a lot of us withdraw in times of stress or adversity. If you can build your resilience, you’ll have an easier time facing new challenges and earn a valuable skill to offer employers.” The course shares five training techniques to prepare for difficult situations, and five strategies for reflecting on them afterward. You’ll learn where you are on the resilience scale, identify where you want to be, and learn strategies to close the gap.
You can also always refer to our Coronavirus/COVID-19 Resources webpage on our public website where you’ll find additional blogs with helpful tips and tools in regards to working from home and staying safe and cyber-secure.
We hope you find these resources helpful. Taking care of yourself so you can continue to live your life to its fullest is what is most important.

Thanks for the link for the video and audio course. There were some great points that I could use for my webinar on a similar subject. I think all of us are trying to prepare ourselves and to make the best of the current situation. Physical and mental resilience is so crucial right now.
