December 8, 2021: Leading Courageously in Unparalleled Times

December 8, 2021,2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Nonprofit leaders have demonstrated resilience and strength since March 2020 when the Covid-19 crisis hit. Examples of innovation and creativity abound; some nonprofits even expanded during this time. Yet we continue to grapple with the pandemic and economic uncertainty. In addition, worries about staff burnout and mental health are real — and likely to be with us for some time.

How can nonprofit executives stay energized and continue to lead with courage and conviction? How do great leaders respond when faced with the test of a lifetime – especially one that grinds on? Why is effective nonprofit leadership so especially crucial now and what are its essential components?

Join Stacy Palmer in conversation with Phil Buchanan and Nancy Koehn. The discussion will focus on how the workplace is changing and ways leaders can meet current challenges. Koehn will draw from her current research and her latest book, Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times.
