To address the growing need of leadership in a virtual setting, The Grove is offering a lab-type online course for organizational leaders, process leaders, and facilitators who want to be more impactful in virtual environments during times of uncertainty and rapid change. This workshop addresses critical aspects of dealing with uncertainty and offers practices that help turn crisis moments into transformational opportunities. This includes how to create virtual environments that reduce stress, strengthen relationships, support resourcefulness, and enable innovative response. The laboratory environment also provides opportunities for participants to consider shifts they need to make to be more adaptable during a time in which uncertainty is the dominant context.
This workshop is being led by Gisela Wendling, Ph.D., and David Sibbet, who bring more than seven decades of combined experience working with leaders to support organizational, social and environmental change. During the past six years, they have been incorporating virtual approaches to complement their project work. Also, as part of their work together, David and Gisela have been developing practices to support the self-efficacy of process leaders in times of transformative change.
The workshop is offered in three parts:
The learning curve everyone is on right now is extraordinarily high. The need to support this increased learning among leaders is equally high as new territories of unprecedented crisis are being charted and leaders need to step up to lead in virtual environments and in new ways. The lab format will allow us to share best practices that The Grove has developed in its organization and community-change work and will provide ample opportunities to tap into the intelligence of participants. We will use robust and visually accessible online tools for a direct experience in learning and leading successfully in the virtual space.This workshop is not intended to provide technical training. We are only assuming basic understanding of video conferencing.
