About the Program

Living and leading through the pandemic emphasized the significant challenges of our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.  How do leaders find coherence and balance in the blurred lines between home and work; in the exponential pace of change and in the unrelenting demands and expectations being placed on them?

Now, more than ever, leaders need to lean on their own set of personal practices to be able to bounce back and bounce forward from adversity and setbacks while also building thriving and adaptable teams. 

This workshop will introduce leaders to a platter of researched-informed strategies to help restore their personal stamina, energy and focus. It will also explore how leaders can strengthen their understanding of team dynamics, build coherence and sustain performance to equip their teams in navigating the challenges that lie ahead.
