Managers have a lot on their plates and hold multiple priorities. They are concerned about the well-being of their employees; they are tasked to achieve the objectives of their departments; and they are also employees with their own concerns and stresses. They can feel caught in the middle, responsible for outcomes but may not feel they have a lot of control. This video describes actions leaders can take that are supported by the body of research on resilience and burnout to help employees while they are navigating uncertainty, change, fear and anxiety.
This video is part of Coming Back Together, a series of videos and handouts created by our counselors to encourage the community to come back together in Fall 2021 with understanding and compassion.
