FUTURE OF LEARNING: HOW TO BUILD RESILIENCE DURING CRUCIBLE EXPERIENCES
Covid-19 continues to disrupt our personal and professional lives. We are now working in environments characterized by increasing novelty, complexity, and change. Working in the discomfort of change is often the most difficult leadership practice because it begins with changing yourself.
Based on years of experience working in high-stake environments and coaching others in their leadership journeys, Laura Thompson will explore how to build personal fortitude in the face of difficulty. She will share both mindfulness, communication, and personal leadership practices that will help you build resilience during crucible experiences.
SELF-AWARENESS: A KEY FACTOR TO NAVIGATING THROUGH CRUCIBLE MOMENTS
It is not the strongest nor the most intelligent that will survive the uncertainty we face – but those who are most adaptable to change. But working in the discomfort of change is often the most difficult leadership practice because it begins with changing yourself.
It starts with the simple but difficult step of learning to understand how you react in tense moments; having a network of ‘allies’ that provides you objective feedback; accepting the things you are unable to change; and finally, discovering new insights on what can be done incrementally to make progress.
Join us for a conversation with Junko Yoda (Harvard University, ALI fellow), Former Managing Director from Deutsche bank and Co-Founder of CLinked, a non-profit organization that trains communities to protect and empower vulnerable women, as we learn how to identify your triggers and how we can make clear, value-based decisions during crucible moments.
GAINING THE POWER TO LEAD THROUGH YOUR VALUES
In a rapidly changing landscape, the overwhelming stress, the high stakes of our decisions, and the complexity surrounding us can be debilitating.
What makes someone a successful and effective leader? Have you ever met a high-impact leader who thrives wherever you place him or her? What is true leadership really anchored on?
In this session, Barbara Kellerman, James McGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School will share ideas, techniques, and tools that can assist them in their leadership development journey, chiefly concepts like the power of story; knowing your values, leadership principles and ethical boundaries; building a support team; and improving leadership effectiveness through fit of life story, situation, and adaptive authentic style.
