Cultivating Stress Resilience Series: Shifting Mindsets

Add to Your Calendar

Tuesday, August 3
10 - 11 a.m.

This workshop is part of PMA's Cultivating Stress Resilience Series. The property management industry is among the most people-centric of professions, and in the last 14 months, as we have endured a pandemic, a divisive election, ongoing social unrest and economic uncertainty, emotional states are more fragile than ever. Show your team that you care by giving them the tools that they need not only to survive, but to thrive in these challenging times.


Objectives for this Workshop Include:

Benefit-Finding with Gratitude: Learn about fault and benefit finding mindsets and how moving into the latter helps build stress resilience. Discover a variety of gratitude practices that help make the shift, as well as additional approaches. 

Moving Toward Growth: Understand the difference between a fixed and growth mindset and how each manifests in different spheres of life. Learn practical steps toward moving deeper into the growth mindset.

About the Facilitator:  

Slava Madorsky is a certified life coach, presenter and trainer specializing in the positive psychology approach to wellbeing, specifically in the areas of stress-management, burnout, vicarious trauma, goal achievement and confidence building. Before entering this profession, Slava spent 10 years as a refugee officer with the immigration service of the US government, traveling to war zones and remote corners of the world to interview refugees seeking resettlement to the US and making decisions on their eligibility. Prior to that, she was a Holocaust educator at the Auschwitz Jewish Center in Poland and a genocide researcher in Rwanda. Seeing the effects of emotionally, intellectually and physically draining work on her own wellbeing and that of her colleagues, Slava developed a specialized program on mitigating the effects of vicarious trauma and stress in order to prevent or recover from burnout. Since then, she has worked with numerous groups and individuals to help them thrive and build their confidence and effectiveness in challenging circumstances.
