Leading During Crisis: What the Science Tells Us

In times of crisis we can sometimes have knee-jerk reactions to things and be over responsive. Other times we may hide and under react.

In this two hour webinar, we explore the science of what happens to the human being when under threat, how to identify when you are in a heightened threat mode and what to do about it.

We will explore a well-known model to explain what we can do to better react more appropriately. We will also discuss how our employees may be feeling and how we can reduce their stress as we all lead during crisis. 

Topics Covered:

  • The threat response – levels of stress
  • Overview of the SCARF Model
  • Key components of the SCARF Model that are most important during the Covid-19 Pandemic Virus
  • Heart Brain Coherence and Optimal Brain Function
  • PFC versus the Limbic Activation System
  • Specific tools and ideas for mitigating the threat while creating a sense of community, distant socializing, and connection
  • Q and A
