The Resilient Leader:
Strategies for Growing Leadership Skills that Engage, Retain and Recruit Staff

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 and how to use it)
  • Skills for managing your stress response for more effective leadership
  • How to use your EQ to give and receive feedback
  • Actions that help employees feel safe at work and help teams thrive
  • Individual and systemic strategies to protect staff mental health to prevent burnout and turnover
