Team Resiliency Virtual Academy

In the face of an unending onslaught of new challenges, individual perseverance is important but team resilience is essential. This collective resilience does not happen by accident. It must be woven into the cultural fabric of a team and driven by leaders. This academy will be divided into three sessions where we will provide practical concepts, tools, and advice in the following areas:

SESSION 01 - Ensure Stability Thursday, Feb 18th @ 11:30am -1:30pm EST

Resilient teams have a clear common purpose that inspires their resolve and guides their decision making. In this session, we will discuss how leaders can articulate and embed a powerful common purpose that will provide a stable foundation for teams to overcome near-term challenges.

SESSION 02 - Enable Action Thursday, Feb 25th @ 11:30am -1:30pm EST

Resilient teams strategically connect their people to both encourage information sharing and to foster the trust and camaraderie that is essential for high performance. In this session, we will examine how to set up open, transparent, and effective communication lines to synchronize and coordinate the team's action.

SESSION 03 - Enhance Agility Thursday, March 4th @ 11:30am -1:30pm EST

Resilient teams adopt a bias to action in which they are constantly learning and adapting. In this session, we will explore how to embed a bias to action within the team culture and systematically create feedback loops that enable the team to flexibly respond.
