Date & Time

Based on her previous 17 years of research and recent interviews with higher education professionals, Eliz shares insights to weather the stress of crisis and change in our industry. Highly capable people are often unequipped to deal with the stress of an unsolvable situation. For them, the stress of dealing with vulnerability amplifies the stress of crisis and change.

In her keynote address, Eliz will share four essential decisions to:

  • Deal with the curse of capability.
  • Get comfortable with the emotional reaction to vulnerability.
  • Focus on what is possible rather than dwelling on what is difficult.
  • Strengthen your resilience muscle.

Stress management takes more than work-life balance and mindfulness. Ultimately, resilience is a choice. We choose to move forward in the face of failure, crisis, tragedy, pain or life-altering (and business-altering) events we can’t control. Understanding your reaction to vulnerability is essential to becoming resilient, and Eliz will offer data-driven health insights and actionable exercises to help you become immune to unavoidable stress.

Included resources

All conference attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Eliz’s most recent book, "Stress-Proof Your Life: High Performance Under Pressure," and a digital toolkit that helps you put the insights you have learned into action.

You will also be invited to participate in a community-wide survey about stress factors impacting your job, and Eliz will share insights gleaned from the results during her keynote.
