The last four years have pushed all of us to deepen our practices around resilience and partnership, to look critically at the ways white supremacy and colonialism affect us, and to lead from a place of trust, vulnerability, and love.
Now, things are changing again, and we as leaders are asking ourselves some big questions:
- What do we do when faced with problems that don’t have simple or obvious solutions?
- How do we lead through uncertainty and ambiguity?
- Why is it so hard to make and take action on some decisions but not others?
If you’re wrestling with these kinds of questions, apply now for the Art of Navigating Change, a 2-day virtual training being held January 26-27, 2021.
You’ll bring a real problem you’re facing in your life or work and explore how your current approaches to problem-solving may act as barriers to getting the results you seek. You’ll also learn tools and practices that will help you handle any type of challenge in the future, all while in a supportive, caring community of your peers.
