Leadership during change is, at best, a constant learning and adapting process. It requires leaders to reflect and learn about existing challenges; find solutions collaboratively with other leaders and team members; and determine new solutions, recognizing that finding solutions is an iterative process. In times of chaos and turbulence, the work of leading through change is further buffeted by the unpredictability and severity of the challenges being confronted. At times like this, leaders need different strategies to continue to “weather the storm” and lead effectively. This presentation explores these new strategies, including foresight thinking, foresight planning, and ongoing communications at all levels.
This training is offered to mental health leadership (e.g., agency executives, program directors, frontline managers).
