09/23/20 The Practices of Purposeful Leadership
Includes a Live Event on 09/23/2020 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
The experience of meaningfulness is a critical ingredient to thriving at work. While animal welfare work is naturally imbued with a sense of meaning, especially in times of crisis, we often lose sight of it or fail to enable it. Research finds those who work for purposeful leaders – leaders who routinely enable the experience of meaningfulness throughout their teams – are more fulfilled, resilient, higher performing, and significantly less likely to burn out, even in the most challenging times. This session describes the science of purpose and meaning and shows how purposeful leaders compel teams and organizations toward their positive potential. We’ll explore three evidence-based practices of purposeful leadership to empower leaders to bring the best out of their teams in a meaningful way.
i. Understand the science of wellbeing, meaning, and purpose
ii. Understand the human performance and business case upside of wellbeing, meaning, and purpose in the workplace
iii. An introduction to the 3 key practice domains of Purposeful Leadership
iv. An exploration of some evidence-based tools for applying Purposeful Leadership across the 3 key practice domain
This webinar has been pre-approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit.
