Northern Crops Institute Hosts Resiliency Expert Dennis Hoiberg

As a partner, parent or community member, daily life in the agricultural community can be challenging. At the same time, we are faced with trade wars, late harvest and challenging financial situations. Such circumstances can be highly stressful and create weariness. To help navigate these trying times, the Northern Crops Institute (NCI) is pleased to host Dennis Hoiberg.

Dennis is an expert in resiliency, stress management and dealing with change in rural and farm economies. Dennis has over thirty years working in rural environments in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, places that are no strangers to extreme weather, market and financial risks.

“The farm economy in this region today is undergoing a tremendous amount of change and that change creates stress,” Mark Jirik, Northern Crops Institute Director states. “Dennis’ message of resiliency and ‘bouncing forward’ in trying times is one that is needed in this region today.”

Dennis’ main area of expertise and interest is helping people thrive through change by applying his lessons and experience in a practical and pragmatic style – one of his main acknowledged strengths.  Dennis’ unique insight into human psychology provides his listeners with highly effective strategies and tools to bounce forward and thrive through change at a personal, team, organizational and community level.

“The real message isn’t about dealing with the big stresses, but more about how you live your daily life during the challenges that tend to worsen through major strife’s,” states Hoiberg. “Resiliency is about how you live your life on a day to day basis.”

In addition to spending time at NCI and the North Dakota State University campus, Hoiberg will be speaking at numerous events throughout the region including Riverland Community College and Minnesota Farm Bureau (Austin and Rochester, MN), the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (Minneapolis, MN), the University of Minnesota Exetension (Sauk Centre, MN), the Resiliency for Ag Teachers Seminar (Fargo, ND) and end with the Prairie Grains Conference and Banquet on December 12th and 13th in Grand Forks, ND. A full list of events can be found below.

Hoiberg’s visit is sponsored by AgCountry Financial Services, Minnesota Corn, Minnesota Wheat, and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
