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.

The coronavirus and our response to it is truly the issue of our time

Course Overview

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. Over a 5-week facilitated journey, participants will have an opportunity to reflect, regroup and refocus.

To commence the course, participants will gather together for a 3-hour online masterclass exploring 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.

In the weeks following the masterclass, participants will transition into small groups to undertake four 90-minute activation sessions. Through these sessions, participants will spend time reflecting on their own experience of, and response to, the pandemic and its ongoing effects on their organisation.
