Building a Resilient Organization

The board and senior leadership design the organization's culture. They influence the work environments that either inspire transformative work or discourage the organization's ability to attract and develop resilient leaders that guide teams to bringing the mission to life. This training creates resiliency boosting conversations and strategies that foster workplace cultures, positioned with relevancy, relationship, and the fluidity to reframe the inevitable disruptions and detours faced by every organization.

Transformational Conversations | Interactive Training

One conversation. One exchange of words spoken, written, typed, texted, or posted can change the direction and ultimately the outcome. Conversations create culture. And yet, the skill and practice of creating culture building conversations is given little attention and less intention in organizations. Conversations directly impact whether the mission is activated or discarded. Companies can't afford to not give attention to strategies that equip people to have transformational conversations. The very sustainability of the organization is a stake.

Resilient Leadership Conversations

We build authentic community in our organizations when we connect over topics and common experiences to build resiliency on our teams and in the work we do. It’s letting go of the one and done mentality professional development and exchanging it for on-going, evergreen conversations that grow resiliency; the practice of reframing challenges with authenticity, identifying relevancy in our work and tending to relationships as do the work.
