Setbacks are unavoidable in any career journey, from C-suite executives, to those just starting out, to teams navigating staffing changes after layoffs or restructuring. But once we understand how to work through the cycle collectively, we'll have the tools to foster growth not only for ourselves but for our organizations, teams, and communities. Amy Shoenthal, author of The Setback Cycle, has studied how leaders work through setbacks for the past few years. In this webinar, she'll offer a sneak peek at some of her research around the neuroscience of setbacks, helping us understand why this phenomenon happens and offering tips and tools to work through the phases of The Setback Cycle. She’ll address why rough periods can lead to innovation, show you how to identify your superpowers, and guide you through exploring your Curiosity with a capital C. You will walk away with a framework to guide decision-making, set boundaries, prioritize your focus areas, and get clarity on your next move.
