We’ve all heard it before: “Change is inevitable.” Sometimes, however, the change is so abrupt and drastic that it can be tough to handle. Unfortunately, this is exactly where we find ourselves amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone is scrambling to deal with chaos and uncertainty. In this interactive webinar, Dr. Scott Dust (Miami University, Farmer School of Business) draws upon social science research to give you practical recommendations on how to cope with stress and leverage your strengths in order to survive and thrive in the current environment. In the webinar, Dr. Dust will cover an assortment of topics from a self-leadership perspective, including crisis leadership, coping mechanisms, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and career management. Scott B. Dust, Ph.D. is the Dr. John F. Mee Endowed Assistant Professor of Management in the Farmer School of Business at Miami University. Dr. Dust earned his Ph.D. in Management/Organizational Behavior at the LeBow College of Business, Drexel University and his M.B.A and B.S. from the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. His research investigates the effect of employees’ metacognitive capacities (e.g., self-awareness, mindfulness, emotional intelligence) on their ability to overcome work-related interpersonal challenges and leverage interpersonal differences in order to engage in constructive conflict. His work has appeared in academic journals such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Leadership Quarterly, Human Relations, and International Journal of Management Reviews. Prior to academia, Dr. Dust participated in a variety of entrepreneurial ventures in market research, brokerage, and actuarial consulting.
