Building the Resilience You Need To Lead In Today's Hybrid World with Dean Becker

In this conversation with Dean Becker of Adaptiv Learning, Bart learns why the unprecedented uncertainty of the past few years has drained and tested leaders like never before, and what they can do to build resilience for the years to come. Dean talks about how uncertainty and stress heightens your signature emotions, drains your energy, and leads to cognitive distortions that impact decision-making. Then he shares two of the seven resilience skills you can build to push through difficult times. Bart and Dean use these skills to examine the pressures that leading in a hybrid world places on managers and leaders and how they can resiliently cope with the ongoing pressures hybrid work brings.
