You Can’t Give What You Don’t Have: Nov. 30 Webinar

 Although last year became known as “the year like no other,” this year seems to be even more challenging! Navigating the daily ups and downs of COVID-19, economic cause and effect fallout from the pandemic, and the constant barrage of misinformation and attacks across the political landscape are all taking their toll on educators.  Administrators and school leaders are facing the conflates of four distinct types of challenges – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA) – that serve as the catchall of what we are experiencing when we say, “It’s crazy out there!”

On November 30 at 4:00 PM, CAS is hosting a 1-hour webinar with Dr. Bill Sommers, former principal and current author, consultant and leadership coach with Learning Omnivores. Dr. Sommers will draw from the works of John Gottman, Barbara Fredrickson, Marshall Goldsmith, and Richard Sheridan to help equip school leaders with the skills and strategies needed to identify, prepare for, and respond to VUCA.

Successful school leaders are at the top of their game – physically, emotionally and cognitively – and understand the importance of making sure to take care of themselves FIRST. Join us on November 30 as Dr. Sommers shares action plans and ideas that you can use to facilitate your own sustainability and successfully lead during VUCA times.
