"A Foundation of Resilience for Leaders"

As a leader, if you are not resilient or focusing on your own self-care you cannot successfully support and lead your providers and team.

Our presenters will focus on a number of areas that as leaders we need awareness of ourselves in our work and personal lives, especially during times of stress. Our presenters will have the group use assessment tools and other activities to self-reflect on their current state and develop ideas and goals around increasing resiliency.
