Event description

Description

It doesn’t matter whether you are a CEO, parent, manager, or student – none of us are immune to the possibility of losing our composure when the pressure is on.

Keeping your composure under pressure is the hallmark of every great leader. Discover the specific strategies you can use to be a better version of yourself when it matters most. This session offers a roadmap for standing firmly in who you are while staying connected to those who matter most to you – especially during high-pressure moments.

This workshop consists of highly interactive content delivered through group discussions, peer coaching conversations, class debriefs, open space formats, and so on. The trainers integrate assessment tools to kick off deep and meaningful conversations and then introduce a simple coaching model, The Process of Thoughtful Action, that you can use to focus the coaching conversations and debrief sessions.

Lunch will be on your own; there is a microwave and Farestart cafe in the building.


Participant Outcomes:

  • Increase capacity to recognize high-pressure moments when they come and tendencies and habits in those moments
  • Recognize your greatest strengths under pressure and the strategies that will help you become a better leader in those moments, for you and the sake of others around you
  • Improve your ability to build high performing and adaptive teams when the pressure and adversity are at their highest
