THE CORONAVIRUS AND OUR RESPONSE TO IT IS TRULY THE ISSUE OF OUR TIME
The coronavirus pandemic has already placed extraordinary demands on many and leaders, in particular, have been on the front lines for a long, long time. Many leaders are experiencing serious ‘carers’ load’ and ‘vicarious trauma’ as a result of their own and others challenges. The need for psychologically safe environments, to assist leaders to process their own experiences and find new reserves of energy to move forward, has never been more critical.
This unique short course offers a timely opportunity for women leaders to explore their experience of crisis, and importantly, to take solace and nourishment from the fact they are not alone. Guided by an expert facilitator, participants will discover new leadership and wellbeing strategies, and have an opportunity to reflect, regroup and refocus.
A half-day online masterclass will explore the concept of crisis leadership and examine how leaders must adapt in times of crisis in order to both contain and interpret the unfolding uncertainty.
A half-day application workshop will then allow participants to reflect on their own experience of the pandemic and its ongoing effects on their organisation, and explore new frameworks and principles to support their leadership capacity and resilience.
