Do you want to be a more resilient leader? Experience and credentials make for good leaders but great leadership requires insight and resilience. To lead a team that will work hard, speak highly of an organization and attract good people, leaders need to enhance the interpersonal aspects of their leadership and of those that lead alongside them.

This session challenges leaders to increase their self-awareness, engage in strategies for skillfully managing stress and highlights methods to increase staff resilience and support employee mental wellness. 

In this interactive workshop, participants learn the following:

  • Latest trends in resilient leadership (what’s in the research)
  • Positive impacts resilient leaders have on staff
  • Neuroscience behind managing your stress response
  • Skills for increasing your resilience – including mindfulness
  • How to use your EQ to increase resilience in your staff
  • How individually and systemically you can protect staff mental health to prevent burnout and turnover
