This Year’s Topic:

“How Interior Designers Can Build Resilience and Better Handle Stress”

Presented By: Geoff Scales, Principal, and Lead Consultant, Dialogik Creative Leadership

According to a recent study, Interior Designers experience job-related burn out and are more susceptible to cynicism and exhaustion at a rate second only to nurses and high-level health professionals?

The World Health Organization calls stress the “global health epidemic of the 21st century”. The negative impacts of high stress and burnout are well documented. The key to overcoming this growing threat to our well-being is learning how to build resilience and shifting our behaviour to better respond to stress.

Most of us operate in an increasingly complex, fast-paced and demanding workplace. We work in an “always-on” culture that encourages us to work anytime from anywhere, and we are feeling the impacts of this.

You can learn to become more resilient. This interactive, experiential session will explore how we can build resilience and increase our capacity to better respond to rising levels of stress and burnout. Participants will be invited to slow down, reflect and assess their own personal sources of stress; they will learn what contributes to resilience; and they will be challenged to select new behaviours to start building their own personal resilience.

Note: The Breakfest Ticket includes access to the Buildex Tradeshow Exhibit Floor
