Leadership, Covid, and Wellness:

What have we learned about ourselves and our teams, and how do we use it going forward?

November 25, 2021


9:30 AM - 3:30 PM


Virtual Live Event

Join us in creating a reflective space as we work with Leaders, at senior and supervisory levels, to explore their roles during this unprecedented time. Using a perspective of the Brain and its response to Stress, the conversation will focus on maintaining the wellness of leaders and their teams during a time of pandemic…and beyond. What meaning and strategies have we learned from the challenges and how can we use these experiences to build plans going forward? Come ready to listen, reflect, and share!
