Special episode 05: Exploring emotions during a pandemic

(Air date: July 15, 2020)

You may be dealing with new emotions as we transition to more social lives and lose daily patterns and routines. Join a conversation with Extension educators Christy Kallevig, Lori Rothstein and Denise Stromme as they discuss change, emotional agility, and strategies to help us "overcome the overwhelm." 

In this special series, we are looking back on webinars and articles shared early during the pandemic, revisiting how that information needs to shift for our current reality.

"It is important as a leader ... not to expect people to be feeling the same thing. Their fear, their sadness, their overwhelm might be for different reasons."

— Lori Rothstein
