Pause, Reset, Nourish, PRN for Leaders – October 2020

This program provides formal leaders with a time to pause and acknowledge their own experiences through the pandemic, to reflect on the impact of COVID on their teams and relationships, and to explore ways to reset and nourish themselves and others as we move into the next phase of continuing to adapt to our evolving social, organizational and epidemiological context.

Target Audience:
All formal leaders who are interested in supporting engagement, mental health and resilience in the workplace through embodied practises that nourish oneself and teams..

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Reflect on our unique experiences as leaders as we have navigated the fog of COVID

  • Recognize that leadership is “an inside job” that arises from our personal character and values, rather than from a particular set of tactics

  • Hear and learn from the experiences and perspectives of our peers, honoring the complexity and diversity of these experiences, in a confidential, safe space

  • Try out a variety of practices intended to deepen reflection, promote connection, invite reconciliation…these are experiential practices we can also bring to our teams and colleagues as we move forward

  • Be together as a community to spark creative responses, have fun, and think a little differently


Special Course Considerations:
We strongly encourage you to take the opportunity to meet with a leadership coach during the course to help you more deeply reflect and personalize PRN possibilities for yourself and your team.  More information will be available in the first session.
