A LUNCH AND LEARN WEBINAR ON
May 20, 2022, Noon to 1 pm CT
Members and Students: Free • Nonmembers $10.00
What if we looked at failing as our First Attempt In Learning rather than the dreaded four-letter word? How would that change the way we approached obstacles as individuals? As organizations? One of the most important characteristics of leadership is resilience. Personal resiliency is important; organizational resiliency is critical to success! In an environment where change is constant and stress is heightened, resilience helps us cope, adapt, and carry on. This education session will explore what resilience is and how we can build personal and organizational resilience.
