Event description
As EDs, there is a constant demand for staying productive — but what does productivity mean in the midst of a pandemic and racial uprisings?

About this event

Despite early signs of resisting “business as usual”, organizations are doing more work and are busier than ever. As positional leaders of our organizations, we feel the need to be productive — to get things done for our people, to mobilize resources for work, and to respond strategically to political opportunities.

In a time of a pandemic and racial terror, the need for immediate and wise action and the calls for pause and slowing down are in tension with one another. Particularly, in this moment of re-entry.

In this conversation, we will be explore the following questions:

  • What does productivity mean in these times?
  • What does the pressure to "produce" mean for our leadership?
  • What's the relationship of rest and overwork to productivity in a time of disaster and racial terror?
  • What are other ways we might uphold excellence and action without doubling down on white supremacist measures of value?
  • What practices can anchor us in this chaotic time?

Join us for a candid conversation with Michelle Gislason, leadership and organizational development coach and consultant from Seattle.
