For the past year and half, we have all been challenged to rethink the way we work. We have taken on different roles on our teams, transitioned to different styles of work and adapted to a rapidly changing environment. Currently, we are experiencing another transition with many people returning to the physical office.

Over the course of 3 episodes, Brenda will cover three themes: Remember, Recover and Renew. Tune in to learn about actionable and practical tips for how you can prepare for your work transition and optimize your well-being. We hope you enjoy!
