Session Descriptions

This workshop will take place in the Pacific Time Zone from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. 

Cultivating Resiliency in Times of Change  June 14, 2022
Field of Study: Personal Development Program Level: Intermediate/Advanced 4 CPE
Time: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Pacific Time / 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM Mountain Time


Higher Education is undergoing a major change. Old ways are crumbling as the value proposition continues to be questioned. Student needs are changing, while the ways we deliver education and work together are transforming. As leaders, it is clear we must reshape or dismantle many of the old structures to build anew.

In this four-hour workshop, we will focus on the skills and sensibilities needed to meet these challenges, especially as more of our people find themselves looking for alternatives to working in our institutions. At the heart of this “Great Resignation” is people’s desire for greater meaning and connection in their work with more flexibility in the way they can work. Now, more than ever, we need to demonstrate how our institutions can provide the right opportunities to retain our best people.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session participants will:

  • Develop practical skills in having difficult conversations
  • Discuss speech acts that demonstrate your power and resiliency as a leader
  • How to Engage your people with humility to improve retention
  • Determine strategies to accelerate cultural change that benefits the institution
