Mini-Course in Resiliency and Adaptive Leadership

March 2020

Join Jeannine Herrick, Senior Staff at the MCH WDC, to learn more about how to lead in challenging times.

Take time to support yourself as a leader. Give yourself time to think and plan. Adapting under stress is hard; the sense of crisis and urgency can push us into missing options, making rash decisions, limiting ourselves, and getting caught up in technical thinking that misses the big picture opportunities.

This mini-course will help.

The mini-course is a short recording in nine  parts. Each section focuses on a different leadership tool to help you think through your leadership work right now:
