ADAPTING AND ADJUSTING: HOW TO BECOME A STRONGER, MORE RESILIENT NUTRITION PROFESSIONAL
In both our personal and professional lives, we are often faced with situations that require us to adapt and adjust. Sometimes this is so easy we act without thinking about what to do next. But other times we struggle with the emotions and decisions involved in these circumstances. This session will focus on how nutrition professionals can adapt and adjust to uncertainty with less personal stress and interpersonal conflict by developing and maintaining a strong, resilient mindset.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:

Discuss one strategy and two tips for becoming stronger and more resilient.
