Ariba Jahan
Resilience in ourselves and our teams

Resilience – what is it? What is it not? How do you even cultivate it for yourself and your team during this time?

With a global pandemic, the continued fight for racial justice, an intense election season, and so many other reasons – responding with a strong sense of resiliency can help one weather the storms. During the pandemic, Ariba led her team through a design project which required them to shift how they work, on-top of migrating to remote-first work. You will hear how they reimagined collaboration, communication, and processes to reduce the stress load while maintaining forward momentum.

In this talk, Ariba will demystify resilience and discuss the difference between resilience and hustle. Explore how to lead your teams while keeping their resiliency in mind and what learnings to bring into the post COVID work life.

Learn how to:

  • Understand what it takes to create resilience over grit in ourselves and our teams
  • Codesign team collaboration, communication and ways of working
  • Nurture team rituals that cultivate team safety and trust
