Nimble Leadership for Uncertain Times
JustLead Washington, Majors Leadership, and Reverb DEI are offering a free, virtual Adaptive Leadership Workshop Series, created to support equity and justice organizations with resources and tools to navigate these times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Understanding that leaders in today’s world must develop new approaches for challenging times, this series will generate dialogue about how leaders can 1) develop skills to address their staff’s human needs; 2) manage logistical and relational concerns around connection while physical distancing; and 3) ensure that they are still making headway towards their mission, vision, goals, and objectives while centering equity and the needs of their clients and communities. Please register even if you cannot attend the live webcast so that you can receive a link to the recorded session and related resources afterward.
Part II: Leading through Times of Isolation
For leaders whose teams normally connect with colleagues and clients in person, this era of physical distancing has presented a host of new challenges: How can one lead effectively when employees are greeting each other with instant messages rather than handshakes? When meetings are held via Zoom or phone rather than face-to-face? When anxiety, financial hardship, health problems, and lack of child care present ongoing challenges for all of us? This session will offer some technical tools, resources, and lessons learned for supporting remote teams and virtual work. We will also explore the role of leaders in supporting teams through times of crisis and staying grounded in our social justice values as well as what we can learn from these times to create positive and equitable workplace cultures that last through our current crisis and beyond.
