Leadership – Thriving in Crisis and Beyond


Do you really want and expect the world of work to return to “normal”? Just as work has evolved and adapted to the new way of being, so do leaders and leadership styles need to evolve and adapt. Successfully navigating yourself and your team during times of crisis requires leaders to BE kind, BE compassionate and BE empathetic with themselves and with others. As a leader, you can prepare yourself and others not only to survive, but to thrive in the face of extreme challenges.

In this course, you will explore how to strengthen your leadership competencies to adapt to being the Chief Emotional Officer of your team/organization, build personal and team resiliency, and thrive in the face of adversity.

This course requires active participation by all participants. Participants will be asked to work and discuss concepts in small groups via breakout rooms.
