NACAS Canada Virtual Roundtable: Prepping for the Fall

Brought to you by NACAS's very own Canadian Committee, this is the space for ancillary members to come together to freely and openly share workplace challenges, solutions, ideas, and concerns. Attendees can choose whether they wish to discuss what operational plans are set for the return to Fall and what scenarios and circumstances need to be considered as students begin to return, or focus on developing their own leadership with new remote or downsized teams and all hurdles that come with your newest management challenge. Whether you're ready to share your own experiences and plans or listen to your peers to see how your own plans stack up, there's sure to be plenty of information available to tweak your strategy for the Fall!

Webinar: Designing Your Team’s Wellness Workplace Charter

Over the last year, as business leaders, we have been evolving how we are managing teams in a virtual environment. We’ve learned new techniques to communicate with our teams, given more grace, and embraced a more balanced life. One of the key areas to address moving forward is to ensure our personal and team’s stress and anxiety are reduced as much as possible. Through the development of a team charter, establishing agreed-upon expectations with your teams will show leadership, demonstrate that you care about their wellbeing, and may reduce employee burnout and turnover. Mark Mohammadpour, APR, public relations executive, certified personal trainer, and health coach who lost and kept off 150 pounds more than 10 years ago, will share practical tools to help keep our minds motivated, our teams feeling inclusive, and our bodies fueled and prepared to lead in this new era.
