Leadership is challenging, exciting, stressful, fulfilling, and, at times, exhausting. Like any year, leaders experienced a range of emotions in 2020 but with the additional realities of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the positive experiences of leading were muted while the negative ones were amplified. In 2021, leaders continue to face challenges with Covid-19 as well as continued demands for remote work, zoom fatigue, and an increased prioritization for mental health within their teams. In his work with elite athletes, executives, and high performers across industries Dr. Bean has observed that people either crumble under stress, bounce back, or become stronger. In this presentation, Dr. Bean will discuss how to become a Resilient and Adaptable Leader by building greater self-awareness, increasing mental flexibility, and exploring how to lead others through periods of high stress.
Purpose Driven Performance presented by Dr. Eric Bean
At the heart of being a Resilient and Adaptable Leader is self-awareness of your strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and, most importantly, your purpose. As a result of 2020, many people are reexamining their purpose as our work experience during the pandemic compelled many of us to re-evaluate our work-life priorities. In this breakout session, Dr. Bean will guide participants to further enhance their self-awareness by examining the science of purpose, the role purpose has in being a Resilient and Adaptable Leader and how a clear purpose serves as the basis for a leadership philosophy. Participants will be provided time and guidance to cultivate their own leadership philosophy.
