Technology, global marketplaces, booming populations, and unstable economies have led to business environments that are often characterized as volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous (aka VUCA). Unsurprisingly, reports of occupational stress and unhealthy work practices and cultures have increased along with these trends. Today, it is no longer enough for leaders to be experts in their fields and authorities in their organizations. Today’s leaders need to be able to manage chaos and uncertainty. They need to anticipate the unpredictable and to be quick to adapt when their anticipations miss the mark. They need to bounce back from setbacks and bounce forward to keep up with the marketplace. In short, leaders have to be resilient.

A new webinar from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) shares some of the latest research drawn from brain science and leadership development to offer key lessons and tactics in cultivating resilience, peak performance, and change management.

In this session you will learn:

  • The individual and organizational implications of “resilience”
  • Key “brain basics” and implications for managing stress and change
  • The powerful impact of sleep and exercise on overall resilience
  • The costs of multitasking and ways to increase focus and attention
  • The role of the social/emotional brain and its implications for relationships, team decision making and organizations.
  • Simple and replicable brain-based practices and tactics to improve performance in the workplace and in life in general.

Target Audience: The audience for this webinar includes individual leaders, managers, HR professionals and anyone interested in learning more about how the brain can help or hinder leadership effectiveness, as well as those interested in learning strategies for cultivating resilience at work
