09/02/20 Positive Perseverance: Leading During Crisis
The work we do in animal welfare is, by its nature, unpredictable and highly variable. In times of crisis, such as the COVID pandemic, these challenges are only enhanced. Team resilience in the face of adversity can be what differentiates effective teams who achieve positive outcomes from those who wither and stumble. Team resilience resources can be cultivated and leaders play a big role in enabling that. In this session we’ll learn about the science of resilience and explore effective leadership practices for cultivating, enabling, and leveraging resilience skills in our teams.
i. Understand the science of psychological well-being and the upside of building well-being resources
