Topic: Resilient Leaders Build Resilient Organizations
Description: Today’s workplace is characteristically frenetic and uncertain, so much so that there is even a well-know acronym to describe it – VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.) How is it possible for leaders to thrive in such circumstances? What does it take to call forth our own best thinking day-in and day-out, let alone to call forth the best efforts of those we lead, coach or consult with?
In this interactive session, we will share what it means to be a Resilient Leader – one who can face these challenging times with an increased measure of calm, clarity and conviction. Together we’ll explore how to develop this capacity in your self and in those you lead, and examine how resilient leaders build more resilient organizations.
During the session you will have the opportunity to take a Resilient Leadership Self Assessment and utilize an organizational survey to evaluate your own organization’s current level of Resilience. You will leave with a couple of key practices you can master and share with others, and a renewed sense of optimism about your capacity to build a more resilient self, a more resilient team, and a more resilient organization.
