Aug 17, 2021 11:00am ‐ Aug 17, 2021 12:00pm

Identification: 071721


1 Clock Hour | Domain G: Meeting and Event Design

People are craving being human. Deliver live event experiences that quench the thirst of needing face-to-face connections and community with others by designing an ecosystem that fosters harmony, growth, and innovation inspired by nature. By bringing people together, live events directly foster humanity, and the essence of humanity is inextricably linked to our natural world. Using the recently released “Nature of Space” whitepaper by IMEX we will use a neuroscience lens to explore the lessons from nature to help build an event that helps our attendees have a healthier, happier, and more meaningful event experience.

Learner Outcomes:

1. Discover how adapting nature’s best lessons can help create a successful event.

2. Explore ways to leverage lighting and environmental features to inspire innovation.

3. Discuss how patterns and shapes found in nature can accelerate and strengthen connections and community.

Oxygen, Please! Self-Care Strategies to Slay Workplace Burnout

Jul 22, 2020 11:00am ‐ Jul 22, 2020 12:00pm

Identification: 07222020

1 Clock Hour | Domain E: Human Resources 

Self-care is as important as oxygen. While companies are working hard to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced, overstressed world, and authenticity is valued in the workplace - many employees are burned out, stressed out, and maxed-out. This results in low employee morale, and decreased performance - the opposite of what a thriving, successful business wants. How can one be true and authentic when they are exhausted? We strive to meet workplace goals and demands, at the expense of our own personal wellness. What if we spin this practice on its head?

My own physical and mental well-being first. Place the oxygen mask on myself first.

Why? So I am operating at my fullest potential, and benefitting the bottom line.

By incorporating simple, self-care strategies into our lives, we can slay workplace burnout and rejuvenate our sense of purpose. The simple truth is this: caring for yourself will allow you to show up as your best self at work and at home.

This fast-paced, webinar attendees will be empowered to reignite their self-care practices, allowing them to show up as their authentic selves and contribute to positive workplace culture.

Learner Outcomes: 

  • Investigate simple, positive changes to increase your physical and mental health
  • Evaluate effective stress management techniques
  • Discover simple lifestyle changes to increase your overall wellness and workplace satisfaction

Coronavirus Dialouge Series: ELITE Emotional Intelligence

May 15, 2020 1:00pm ‐ May 15, 2020 2:00pm

Identification: 05152020

1 Clock Hour | Domain E: Human Resources

When EI goes up, productivity and performance follow. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Lopez discusses the PACT Method for determining invisible codes in our brain and how the application of this method applies in the workplace. In this way, a rarely talked about dimension of EI is illuminated for impactful performance results. Learn about Dr. Julie’s proven 4-part methodology to identifying invisible roadblocks and how you can make them visible for removal.

When every member on a team is feeling and doing their best, the team as a whole performs at their highest level. When any member of your team falls on hard times, the whole system is affected. As a leader, it's your job to support your team emotionally and psychologically so that your people can come back stronger and more engaged than ever.

Emotionally intelligent leaders spend less time in pointless conflict and more time building teams. Executives, managers, and companies have been investing in boosting the emotional intelligence of their teams for decades, and this is because a team that can empathize, communicate, and self-regulate emotions is one that can reach elite levels of performance.

The fact is when EI goes up, so does productivity and performance, and what company doesn't want the dream team increasing engagement and achieving higher levels of excellence?

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Participants will learn about an elite level of emotional intelligence related to our brain’s implicit memory so that they can more effectively manage and relate to their teams.
  2. By learning to recognize the signs of implicit memory blocks in colleagues, PACT methodology can be applied for improved productivity, performance and morale.
  3. Through an experiential exercise of applying the PACT method, participants will understand how the 4 steps work in order to implement this tool to more effectively move through seemingly impossible conflict.

Coronavirus Dialogue Series: Avoiding Burnout and Managing Stress

May 13, 2020 11:00am ‐ May 13, 2020 12:00pm

Identification: 05132020

1 Clock Hour | Domain E: Human Resources

Stress is commonplace for those who work in the meetings industry. “Event Planner” continues to land in the top five - on the top 10 list - of the most stressful careers year after year. And, in 2019 the World Health Organization formally recognized that burnout is caused by “chronic workplace stress that is not properly managed”. While those in this industry are ‘used’ to some level of stress, it seems that it is not going to lighten up anytime soon – for anyone.

While the WHO has defined and recognized burnout and its cause, they offer no direction on prevention or recovery. Hitting burnout can be painful, lifechanging and expensive and every human effort should be made to avoid it. There are ways to avoid it when adjustments are made early enough. Today, hear from a 25+ year meetings executive who left the industry after her own experience with burnout. Her story, what to look for, what it looks like if you do nothing about it, and immediate (and simple!) ways you can protect yourself from falling into the burnout rut.

Learner Outcomes: 

1. Participants will gain a clear understanding of what causes burnout, what it looks like and its cost.

2. Participants will learn the signs to look for in themselves that may indicate they are heading towards burnout and the potential impact on their body and lives.

3. Participants will learn the first line of defense simple adjustments to make in their lives to ensure their stress remains manageable and doesn’t lead to burnout.
