Participate in Weatherhead Executive Education’s July program to build resiliency

Weatherhead Executive Education program will host a program titled “Resilience: Thriving through Uncertainty and Change” in July. The program will consist of three, two-hour sessions (July 13, 20 and 27).

Resilience is the ability to respond to life’s challenges with confidence, flexibility and equanimity, and also to grow and develop in new ways. During the COVID-19 pandemic, resilience is needed more than ever—for ourselves and for the people we lead. 

This Weatherhead Executive Education program will share specific skill development tools and frameworks to develop resilience by focusing on seven core competencies: 

  • Emotion regulation;
  • Impulse control;
  • Causal analysis;
  • Self-efficacy;
  • Realistic optimism;
  • Empathy; and 
  • Reaching Out. 

These competencies equip leaders to adapt flexibly through adversity, leading to growth and success. For upwardly mobile professionals navigating the shifting tide of change, these skills will enable participants to stand out in excellence against a backdrop of mediocrity.

This skill development course will help participants develop their overall leadership ability by outlining scientifically researched resilience skills, and practicing the application of these skills in both the work and personal context.

As a result of attending this program, participants will:

  • Increase their self-awareness of how adversities in their environment impact their thoughts and thinking process;
  • Learn and apply an approach to conscious decision-making for choosing the thoughts that will lead to a more productive outcome; and
  • Recognize the importance and impact of all aspects of resilience on leadership capability, as well as other arenas of life.
