Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic — The Emotional Roadmap Back to the Office

Virtual Self-Directed Learning Videos Series

Over a year ago, most of us had to quickly adapt to working from home. While the physical transition was swift, the uncertainty of how long this new way of working would last was always on our minds. Now, as we begin to prepare to return to work on campus, there are a new set of emotions that you may be experiencing that are rational, valid, and genuine.

This video series is designed to create space to explore these various emotions and to hear stories that people have in relation to the transition back to campus. They also offer the opportunity to embrace a growth and solutions-based mindset that will empower each of us to navigate this transition in a constructive way.

Similar to the live virtual workshops, these videos provide knowledge and actionable lessons for bringing awareness to and managing emotions in these heightened times.
