GRIT LEAD Training Info
GRIT Resiliency Training has been established to train volunteers in the community to promote wellness and resilience among fellow community members – friends, family, and acquaintances – in the wake of the stress caused by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Due to the impact of the stresses of COVID-19 on individuals, families, and communities, the current pandemic can be viewed as a disaster for the community, the country, and the world. In times of disaster, strengthening coping, spreading support, and providing resources can have a positive impact on healing and resilience for everyone.
GRIT-LEAD provides education, training, and support community leaders who have had to adapt quickly to a virtual workforce. In addition to their own mental health and wellbeing, community leaders are facing a multitude of unique challenges including supporting employees working from home and essential staff working in a challenging environment, assisting the transition of returning to work, managing concerns for safety and policy changes, managing ever-changing budget restrictions and challenges, and supporting the wellbeing of staff. In this stressful time, employees may be looking at their leaders and managers for answers and support that has not yet been developed. Because of this, GRIT-LEAD is focused on giving strategies to those leaders around supporting employees, managing in a new environment, and how to assist their employees in the back-to-work transition.
