09/02/20 Positive Perseverance: Leading During Crisis
Includes a Live Event on 09/02/2020 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
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
ii. Understand the concepts of psychological resilience and how it displays in teams
iii. Understand the three primary types of resilience factors
iv. An exploration into a variety of evidence-based practices leaders can utilize to enable resilient veterinary teams
This webinar has been pre-approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit.
