Healing at Work with CHRO Susan Schmitt Winchester - Employee Well-Being Exchange

What is necessary to fully heal in the workplace? Susan Schmitt Winchester, CHRO at Applied Materials and co-author of Healing at Work: A Guide to Using Career Conflicts to Overcome Your Past and Build the Future You Deserve, will join the exchange to discuss how the workplace can provide opportunities to replace limiting beliefs and behaviors with positive, supportive beliefs, insights, skills, and experiences to build a successful career.  Susan will show us how employees can use the “Rapid Power Reclaim process” to manage Bumper Car Moments – those conflicts where colleagues’ pasts and present realities and beliefs collide.
