To help our nonprofit partners during these uncertain times, Apparo is running a weekly virtual Q+A discussion series via Zoom, Thursdays at noon. Here are details on the next one:


Influence Under Stress

As stress levels rise, people tend to focus on their immediate needs. Doubt and distrust can creep in, and emotions can knock rationality out of their thought processes. With the current stress-inducing crisis, navigating this cognitive gauntlet and connecting with coworkers is especially critical for organizational success.

During this online discussion, Certified Forensic Interviewer Michael Reddington will guide us through actionable advice for supporting a stressed team by implementing the Disciplined Listening Method. This involves:

  • Establishing trust
  • Helping people see beyond their fears
  • Opening minds to new solutions
  • And more!

By the end of the discussion, you will be better equipped with the skills, techniques and perspectives necessary to guide your team through this crisis and decrease the negative impacts of stress.
