1. Managing in a World of Nonstop Change - Overview (90 Min) 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM June 18
It has become a truism that the only constant is change. The impacts of a UCP government, economic impacts in the oil & gas sector, changes in sector funding, and a global pandemic have us in a continuous, nonstop state of change. And our middle managers are most affected, in their ‘sandwich roles’ of dealing with staff and upper management. In this session we will address the stages of transition and change as an ongoing phenomenon.

2. A Framework for Personal Change - (90 Min) 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM July 9th
In today’s changing global economy, uncertainty and constant change, are an ongoing concern and an ever present reality. Under these conditions we often feel insecure and we grasp for any source of stability and predictability. In the workplace in particular we earn for a sense of direction. We often have high expectations for our leaders, but we need to hold the same expectations for ourselves. 

3. Tools & Strategies to Build Resiliency - (90 Min) 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM July 16th
Organizations today need to work faster, more collaboratively, and recognize that a good idea can come from anywhere. They need new ways of thinking and new ways of doing - and they need leaders who can embrace and help create the new normal. This session will focus on tools and strategies for building resiliency in your teams.

4. Finding Vitality As Organizations - (90 Min) 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM July 23rd
Building more learning-agile, strategic, and emotionally intelligent leadership is needed in an environment that is constantly changing. Learn how to create new paradigms to tackle uncertainty We will explore the importance of learning together and the disciplines of the Learning Organization (Senge, 2006). In the current environment you can excel, grow and surpass your expectations - and may have fun in the process!
