Webinar: Sustaining Resilience During COVID-19 - From Leadership to the Front Line - April 1

Space is Limited!

Who: Healthcare leaders, community leaders, leaders of front-line workers and others involved in the COVID-19 response.

What:  COVID-19 has changed the world in which we live and work. Leaders and front-line healthcare professionals alike are facing new and more complex challenges as we adapt to a rapidly changing environment of care, while the level of uncertainty and ambiguity continues to grow.  We are forced to make more difficult decisions, work in new ways and care for our own families, all while motivating our workforce to stay the course.  So how do we collectively cultivate resiliency in order to remain strong and thrive while in stressful conditions, particularly when connection to others must be made from a distance?  In this webinar, we will hear from three professionals to explore the dynamics of COVID-19 and how we can continue to support the development of our best selves as leaders through crisis. We will also learn about a model of peer to peer support developed to support Chinese healthcare professionals, and an upcoming opportunity to virtually build resilience together.

When:  Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 2:00pm PST / 3:00pm MST / 4:00pm CST / 5:00pm EST

Where: Register here

Learning Objectives:  

  • Understand the conditions necessary to cultivate resiliency as leaders and thrive through crisis.
  • Learn about an innovative model to provide peer to peer support utilizing social media developed for Chinese healthcare professionals fighting the virus at the front line in Wuhan.
  • Learn about “Stronger Together – Resilience Circle,” an opportunity to virtually build resilience through mindful gratitude practices

Webinar: Your Organization's Culture Can Drive or Undercut Success - May 7

Who:  All behavioral health and health leaders

What:  Culture is largely recognized as an important factor in an organization’s success.  However, few leaders have an in-depth understanding of what it is and how it works, let alone intentionally investing in building a high-performance culture.  Additionally, in today’s environment, it is important to meaningfully connect you, and your organization’s high performing culture with the larger ecosystem in which you operate.

The intent of this interactive webinar is to critically review and discuss organizational culture in a manner designed to support taking learnings back to your own organizations to further your success.

Key themes to explore:

  • How do I define/recognize a “culture of high-performance”?  What are the measures, actions, results of a culture of high-performance?
  • What does this look like within my organization, particularly in light of new norms as a result of the current environment?
  • As a leader, how do I translate this to working with other organizations and stakeholders to develop a culture of high-performance, action, and results-orientation.
  • What is my role in the larger ecosystem as a leader among leaders?

When:  Thursday, May 7 2020 at 1:00pm PST / 2:00pm MST / 3:00pm CST / 4:00pm EST
