How Being an Expat Can Help You and Others Through This Crisis

Epidemics and pandemics come with significant mental health impacts that need to be addressed at the societal but also organizational level. This webinar will suggest ways that can help you and your teams adapt to unchartered territory—everything feels totally different—in the same way that expats have learned to adapt their lives across the globe. The speakers will address questions such as:

  • Where do we look for support?
  • How do we handle setbacks, awkwardness and miscommunication?
  • How can we and those we manage grow and evolve from this situation?

Finally, the speakers will discuss how the multiple crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are changing the nature and role of management and why this could be an opportunity for collective good.
