Virtual Lunch and Learn 
Revitalizing Business Post COVID-19 Quarantine
Michele Bennyhoff,  NAWBO Sacramento
Owner, Bennyhoff Products and Services

TODAY : Tuesday, May 19th   at 12 pm ET 

We’ve all been shaken by COVID-19. Even businesses that are still functioning are finding the need to shift how they operate. Instead of waiting for the “new normal” to happen to you, it’s time to be proactive and create your own future. Learn to pivot by identifying opportunities around you and positioning your strengths to meet new demands.

As leaders begin to think about going back to “business as usual,” it will be vital to recognize and plan for creating a new normal. Michele will discuss how to:

  • Create an organizational culture that recognizes collective trauma.
  • Train Human Resources on mental health first aid and the impacts of mental health on the workforce.
  • Provide staff with clear policies, procedures and resources to support them in returning to work.
  • Train all staff to understand, listen and ask for reasonable accommodations.
  • Re-evaluate responsibilities, workloads, deliverables, timelines and collaborative processes.
  • Provide training and resources about empathetic economics and financial planning.

All-New Community Connects!
Every Wednesday at 5:00 pm ET
May 20th

Grab your favorite beverage and join us by video (so we can see each other just like we would in an in-person meeting)! We’ll connect, share best practices and support one another in an interactive chat format.

This is a safe space to share since the calls are not being recorded.

Each week we will spend the first 20 minutes of the Zoom call checking-in to see how we are doing. Think about sharing stories of inspiration and innovation of how you are managing during this challenging time. The call will transition to a “think-tank” for us to help brainstorm and support you with business challenges resulting from the current business crisis/environment we are experiencing. We will spend the final 40 minutes of our Community Connects call supporting up to four people each week.  A person will present their business challenge and everyone else will then have the opportunity to share ideas in “popcorn style.”

No need to register!
