In this workshop, leaders will be offered tools and strategies to promote the capacity for resilience in their staff. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be a resilient leader and how to build the bounce of their staff. Resilient leadership is the term used to describe those leadership behaviors that help others withstand crisis, adapt to, or rebound from, adversity (George Everly, Johns Hopkins University). Participants will use the Devereux Resilient Leadership Survey (DERLS) to reflect on ways to support their staff resilience and will also have an opportunity to reflect on their own resilience and explore strategies to build their personal bounce.
