December Workshop – Resilience: Widening Your Window of Tolerance to Stress, Uncertainty, and Change
Implementing change is often a challenge, even when the change is for good. When changes come as a surprise, bringing difficult questions with them, managing the change process can become a nightmare.
This workshop focuses on providing an in-depth understanding, tools, and practices to ‘widen our window’ of tolerance. This workshop is grounded in research and focuses on providing practical, effective tools for expanding the resilience window and managing emotional dysregulation and triggers so that you can show up as your authentic self both at home and at work.
This will provide leaders with a set of skills and strategies to help them guide their teams through periods of change so that the team can remain stable and productive, even if the atmosphere around them isn’t.

About the facilitator: Alexis Pokorny Kahlow
“You do not have to sacrifice wellbeing for results; in fact, wellbeing is the secret to your consistent success.”
Being a 12-year Cisco veteran recognized as a Top 1% sales performer, Alexis most recently ran Cisco’s NYC Financial Services Sales and Engineering business. As a highly functioning corporate sales leader in NYC, she saw employees who felt stuck in high-income, cutthroat jobs.
Through her own results, she knew that “non-traditional” modalities were an asset. So she introduced corporate-based mindfulness to her team which led to a decreased turnover, improved culture, and increased performance. After successfully presenting mindfulness to Cisco’s 70,000 employees, she was inspired to touch more lives and set out to do so.
By going through the methods we teach, Alexis met her husband, started a fulfilling business that felt like play, was free to travel the world, bought her dream house, developed a nurturing community, and created a life that was grounded in the “Flow,” fulfilling and impactful.
She couples her entertaining corporate anecdotes as a corporate leader at a Fortune 50 company with over 15 years of studying mindfulness, intuition, and energy in real-world practical terms that lead to results… without the grind.
Her mission is to prepare and advocate for a new professional, one who embodies ancient wisdom and modern technology so we can create a regenerative world where we thrive instead of just survive.
Today she presents globally, working with Fortune 500 companies to develop internal mindfulness programs, provides professional training through the Open Deltas community, and is publishing a book on how to get out of the grind and into the flow.
