Throughout these highly challenging times, leaders are doing their utmost to support their teams, frontline staff and clients in every imaginable way, persistently responding to the ongoing “fight or flight” emergencies that arise, which for many has become their mantra. Leaders often have little opportunity to prioritize their own essential state of well-being.

While this response to these emergency crises is essential in the short term, it is not feasible to sustain for the long haul without serious negative implications to one’s emotional, physical, and mental health.

Recognizing the continued urgency to globally address COVID, the opioid crisis and homelessness, this two-part Strengthening Leadership Resilience workshop series is designed to create a confidential, safe platform for leaders to:

  • Voice and acknowledge their own current experiences/challenges
  • Identify and prioritize sustainable ways to regroup/refuel for the long haul
  • Strengthen personal strategies/techniques to add to their Leadership Resilience Toolbox

In order to create a space that fosters conversation, interaction and reflection we will be limiting the workshop to 25 participants. Participants will be asked to make a commitment to participate in both part 1 and 2 of the workshop.

Part 1: July 21, 2021 – 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Part 2: Aug. 11, 2021 – 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Who should attend

Senior leadership. Executive leadership. Senior Managers.
