WXN Summer Sizzle Series

Join our Summer Sizzle series... because sometimes, girls just wanna have fun!

Dr. Karen MacNeill is a highly recognized performance psychologist and speaker who has worked with business leaders, organizations and Olympians for the last 5 Winter Games. Dr. MacNeill will teach you a model for developing resilience, understanding your responses to stress, and helping you develop tools for building mental fitness and resilience. This is self-discovery at its best!

You know that feeling when you dig your toes into warm sand? When you sip a cold beverage in the sun? When the wind whips through your hair as you cruise with the windows down? That’s summer.

It’s also the perfect time to gear up for the rest of the year. To arm yourself with mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strength for whatever comes next. To remember to do something kind for yourself, have fun and enjoy life.

In other words: It’s time to make your summer sizzle.

That’s what WXN’s Summer Sizzle is all about. Our new virtual cocktail chat series powers up your skills in the arts of grounding, resilience, nutrition, happiness and more. Plus, it’s fully interactive – meaning you’ll not only learn something new, but you’ll get to practice it, too!

So grab your favourite drink, head out to your patio and get ready to mix and mingle with our amazing WXN community of great leaders.

Session Overview:

In March we all experienced what can only be described as a ‘where were you when’ moment. The WHO declared a pandemic, and we all had to make the necessary adjustments.  Given the change to daily routine, constant influx of information, and uncertainty about what the future holds there have been more demands on leaders and employees than ever before.

This increased pressure and stress can have negative impacts on health, well-being and ability to consistently execute if not dealt with in a proactive way. To mitigate the risks and promote optimal performance, leaders and employees need to build resilience and arm themselves with tools to ensure their corporate journey sees them burning bright vs burning out.

In this engaging and interactive presentation, Dr. Karen MacNeill will present a model for developing resilience, improve your levels of self-expertise by better understanding responses to stress, and help you develop tools for building mental fitness and resilience.  A highly recognized performance psychologist and speaker who has worked with business leaders, organizations and Olympians for the last 5 Winter Games, Dr. MacNeill will provide you with new insights and tools to enhance your ability to be well and excel during these times of uncertainty.
