Prescription for Leadership

Grab the noodle soup. Stock up on tissues. The cold and flu season has hit the region with the fury and force of a jet engine!  Health care providers prescribe rest, plenty of fluids, time off, and eventually you will be back to your old self, perhaps even healthier than before. Phew…crisis averted.

The health of leadership in our region is also constantly at risk. Mergers, talent retention, budget lines, oh my! All these stresses influence and attack the strength of leadership in nonprofit, corporate and governmental settings.

It is increasingly challenging to be a leader in any field. It is an uphill climb to bridge the divide between conflicting opinions to find common ground. And it is not easy to be committed to the needs of those in your organization while responding to the demands of a diverse, evolving economic landscape. Leadership: It is a huge undertaking; the stresses are daily and the work can feel impossible.

How can you maintain excellent leadership health? Or, as an emerging leader, how can you develop healthy leadership habits?  A different type of prescription is required– immediate surges of encouragement and booster shots of inspiration to keep you functioning at your best!

To that end, we invite you to join us, for a bit of inspiration and a “health boost” at our ninth annual Lessons in Leadership series. This year we will focus on Leaders Eat Last by the popular writer and TED Talk sensation, Simon Sinek, who tells us that true leaders “rush headlong into the unknown…”

These five standalone sessions will provide you with healthy doses of inspiration to keep your leadership systems running at their best.
