WEBINAR: Crisis Leadershp

How effective has your Court Leadership Team been in dealing with the pandemic crisis? Please Join this national conversation on leading effectively amid a crisis.

The COVID-19 pandemic has sent shockwaves across the globe. The public health crisis and likely economic fall-out will be “game-changers” for leaders everywhere. It is a tumultuous and evolving situation posing significant leadership challenges (and opportunities) for our nation’s courts.

This is a time for trial court leadership teams to shine. It is a defining moment for those who are leading courts and are coaching others to be their best in times of crisis. Court leadership teams, now more than ever, are being called upon to step up and lead with calm and confidence amid the chaos and uncertainty. Practical and research-based tips and strategies will be shared in three primary areas: (1) leading with confidence while making swift and difficult decisions; (2) caring for and connecting with your people; and (3) taking care of yourself so you can lead effectively.
