From Anxiety to Action: A Resilience Framework to Empower Leadership

Dealing with challenges is an inevitable part of leadership. Over time, leaders will develop a suite of support tools for the difficult times. However, the scale of the challenge the Coronavirus pandemic presents to public sector leaders is relentless, unprecedented and multifaceted, and it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed or anxious in this context.

In this webinar, Michael Dunlop and Alana Jones, OR Consultants, will present The Well Formed Outcome framework, an evidence-based, practical set of steps that can help you to develop your own resilience in dealing with these situations.

This framework is designed to take you from dealing with problems and issues to creating achievable outcomes and to bring more of the situation back within your control.

It is a very effective framework for conversations and meetings in leading and managing remote teams.

Participants will:

· Gain practical experience of a framework that they can begin to use immediately

· Learn key questions to quickly get to the heart of an issue

· Create achievable outcomes and next steps that are within their control

· Discuss and plan for how this framework can be effectively applied both personally and with teams and organisations
