Session Description:

Resilient Leadership

Today’s leaders face unprecedented demands on their time and attention. The “always-on” expectations can take a real toll unless we adopt the resilience, awareness, mindfulness, and leadership skills to overcome the challenges. In this session Dr. Cheri Canon will explore the mindset that strong leaders develop to manage stress, maintain wellness, and lead with resilience.
