Leadership challenges and crises are inevitable and, for the most part, outside our control. But how we respond is within our control—and can determine whether we successfully overcome a challenge or succumb to burnout. Resilience is a critical skill for effective leadership, but it's a quality that you can develop with the right knowledge and practice.
In this session, I will share stories of recent leadership challenges and tragedies—as well as anecdotes from my ten years of fire-rescue experience—that have tested the limits of my resilience. Together, we will assess our capacity to bounce back from a crisis using the REBOUND Framework. We will use hands-on materials to create personalized plans to bolster our resilience reserve. Attendees will leave this session with a framework to improve their response to an emergency, equipped with specific action steps to build resilience into their leadership and prepared to manage the stressors that can contribute to burnout.
