PRACTICING APPRECIATIVE RESILIENCE OVERVIEW:
As a leader you are being called upon to re-tool, re-create, and respond like never before. This requires a compelling resilience practice to sustain self and others. Leaders are residing in a landscape that is changing drastically hour by hour. Appreciative resilience is a powerful practice that uses appreciative inquiry as its foundation. It explores how leaders can practice hope, uplift strengths in times of despair, and foster forgiveness as part of their resilience. These sessions are designed to help leaders dwell in what is happening and find ways to sustain themselves and their organizations.
In this webinar series, you will explore how to:
- Build appreciative resilience in highly challenging times;
- Practice hope and a hopeful view as the world is tilting around you;
- Uplift strengths as you face the challenges and despair around you; and
- Foster forgiveness as part of your appreciative resilience practice.
