The Return Events

There is a lot of stress and uncertainty for everyone these days. With the return to sport, school, and for many, back to their usual places of work with many unknowns about how things will unfold,  anxiety levels are on the rise.

But hindsight is 2020. What did we learn from the past 18 months that we can carry forward to make the return to the upcoming sport season, school or workplace,  just a little easier.


We welcome you to join us in our upcoming webinar that will address how to manage the issues many of us are facing, and answer the questions many are asking.

How will things be different this time? Can I make different decisions than my teammates/schoolmates/co-workers and if I do, how do I manage that? What if the 4th wave hits and we shut down again? How will my kids cope? How will I cope? What is the best way to prepare both myself and my family/athletes/staff?

Learn some valuable skills, tips and techniques that will help to ease us all into a more prepared and enjoyable fall season at work, school, or sport.

Let’s talk about it. Join the discussion

The Return to Work - Tuesday, September 7, 12:00PM

In Session 2, IGM President, Bob Wilkie will return along with Mental Health Clinician Shawn O’Grady to discuss the challenges and stresses facing those returning to the office/workplace this fall.

And these challenges are not for employees alone, but for the business owners and managers who are tasked with ensuring the workplace is safe for their employees and customers from both a psychological and physical standpoint. 

Are you faced with the choice of returning to the office or maintaining a remote position? Are you mandated to return to the office? What does this mean for your work-life balance once again? How will your loved ones and pets adjust to your return to work away from home?

These and other questions are causing increased levels of stress and anxiety for many as we close out these last days of summer.

Join us on September 7th as we discuss strategies for managing the uncertainty.
