How to Become the Resilient Leader Your Mission Requires

Thursday, September 16, 2021
12:00 pm1:30 pm

This is a training sponsored by the National Community Action Partnership.

Resilience is a concept we have all learned much more about in the last year. Organizational resilience is key to continued operation and growth in complex times. Melanie Lockwood Herman, Executive Director of the Nonprofit Risk Management Center, will be presenting an eight-part webinar series on developing more resilient organizations with practical tools for non-profit and public organizations. Each webinar will feature concrete, hands-on approaches to building resilience from the inside out. Melanie will break down the concept of organizational resilience into the eight key themes we all need to learn and know to strengthen our agencies and our teams. The webinars are being released in conjunction with a robust, interactive Resilience Toolkit also available through the Partnership.

This final webinar of the series explores the qualities, traits, and skills of resilient leaders — the very type of leaders that organizations in an uncertain world require. Learn what you can do to become a leader who helps others ‘bounce back’ from downside risks your agency couldn’t avoid and draw potent learning opportunities from failures, mistakes, and near misses.
