For Those Who Were Laid Off or Struggling, ThinkLA May Have the Online Event for You

By Doug Zanger 

Oh, where to begin? We could write some pithy start to a short article that touches on “unprecedented” times, the pandemic … blah, blah, blah. Then, you know, Washington D.C.

Honestly, we’re not trying to make light of anything. It’s a heavy time, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed, especially with so much unpredictability.

The good folks at ThinkLA may have something that can help. On Wednesday, Jan. 13, from noon to 1:15 Pacific Time, they are presenting an informative and interactive online session, “Mindset for Moving On: Shifting Perspective in Crisis from Surviving to Thriving.”


Hosted by Carrie Williams—who specializes in leadership coaching and team development in the creative and entertainment fields—the focus is on mindset and how it can take you from survival to thriving. The context is the relative shitstorm we’re all in.

“In the last 11 months of the pandemic, every aspect of our lives has required re-evaluation and readjustment,” said Williams. “We are in a forced transition where everything is uncertain and overwhelming.”

The workshop seeks to:

  • Explore the current crisis and identify the personal impacts resulting from it.
  • Identify the story we have created about the situation, and learn how to retell it.
  • Shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
  • Focus on developing an abundance attitude.
  • Discover the opportunities hidden in the current situation.

Williams’ style is highly interactive and leans on the wisdom of attendees to share knowledge. Additionally, she uses evidence-based techniques ranging from cognitive and behavioral to neuroscience to help people envision and create the world they want to live in.

“My hope is to create a world, or at least a workshop, where people feel safe, empowered, hopeful for the future, and confident in their next steps,” said Williams.
