Going Virtual with Resiliency Expert Eileen McDargh

I believe that making a positive impact in the lives of others and contributing to their success is my calling in life.  HOW I do that is by offering ideas and solutions to create conversations that matter and connections that count.  Ultimately, WHAT I do is help them find a clear path so they can build resilience and move forward.

  • What if your organization needs the creative brainpower of all stakeholders? 

  • What if your leaders need to figure out how to release the talent and collaboration of remote workers?

  • What if your teams are in disarray and disconnected because of all the chaos in the world?

  • How can individuals harness the energy of optimism and action?


We can do this and more through the wonder of technology.  But please, no clunky webinars.

Virtual Programs - These have been created specifically for a COVID-19 World

All of us are being whip-lashed by a barrage of frightening news, warnings, and dire predictions about the fate of our communities, countries, and world. Many of us are just plain anxious and frankly scared. Never before has there been such a universal need to understand and cultivate resilience.


Burnout to Breakthrough: Building Resiliency to Refuel, Recharge and Reclaim What Matters

In May 2019, the World Health Organization declared burnout as a global occupational hazard with specific symptoms and warnings. Enter COVID 19 and an upside down world.  Burnout has become even stronger and insidious. Remote workforces, physical distancing, and dependency on virtual communication provide their own potential for burnout. You’ll experience why Eileen has also been called a HOPE merchant, filling minds with positivity, laugh-ability and DO-ability.
In this interactive, provocative, and engaging program, participants will
explore a process for moving from burnout  to breakout to break through.

  • Discover what are the personal and organizational triggers that create this condition.

  • Learn specific steps to take control of life from both an individual and corporate perspective.

  • Begin conversations that offer new ways to reframe and advance in a world that looks quite different.


The Art of Balancing an Unequal Life: The Secret to Resiliency!


Make no mistake—everyone works—whether for free or fee!

How can you work smart and live happier? Is it even possible to have work/life balance in this fast-paced, frantic world? From senior executives to front line employees, this issue is key to the changing nature of America's workforce and today's world.

We hear about the need to balance personal and work priorities, but how do you go from burned out to fired up? How can we juggle the many responsibilities and demands on our busy lives?

In this insightful and interactive program you will:

  • Understand why traditional models of balance no longer work in these times of change.

  • Discover how to conduct your own “CAT” scan of life.

  • Acquire the skills to “sail” within the five critical areas of living.

  • Create your own action plan for juggling the demands of your fast-paced life.

  • Develop personal strategies for creating “a life by design, not be default”.

  • Learn at least three methods for effective self-management and self-improvement that you can put to work immediately.

Tap-dancing on Running Water: Living in Disruptive Times


Fear paralyzes us. Clear thinking moves us.  This session is designed to open a conversation about what we can do as individuals and professionals to move from pandemic panic to realistic response. During this 45-minute session, I will guide you through the accurate definition of resilience and begin to explore actions to take in cultivating four critical resilience skills: adaptability, agility, laugh-ability and alignment. And it all begins with YOU—what conversations you are having with yourself and what emotions rise as a result? In times like these, we also have the opportunity to be inspired, innovative, imaginative.  


Creating a Resilient Workforce: The Care and Feeding of Remote Teams


Alone again—and not so naturally.  With employees scattered in various locations—even within the same city— a leader’s job becomes a blend of psychologist and coach, teacher and student.  Within the reality of both optimism and pessimism which we all deal with, this program helps managers focus on attributes: clarity, collaboration, creativity, comedy and compassion.

Note: this program–depending upon the number of participants—can also offer a forum for leaders to discuss critical issues and share best practices.


In Her Own Voice


This is a virtual mastermind retreat for women. Through a process of reflection, journaling, and communal sharing, participants discover what is their desired Act III.

Come together with other women who bring their own wisdom to the fire.  Be supported and taught skills for leading a life by design and not by default. You will learn how to powerfully and positively shape the direction of your future. You will honor the place of NOW in your life. You will explode the myth of balance and replace it with a model that recognizes the challenges of life.  And from a place of self-leadership, supported by a community of women, walk away with skills and insights for the next part of your journey.

Here are a few video samples of virtual programs.  These programs were crafted as early responses to global lockdowns.  I served as the content provider on their platform and with their format.
