Navigating Change: Leading in Turbulent Times
Jim Clemmer presented this webinar to Leadership Waterloo Region, an organization that works to provide community-focused leadership development opportunities to support our community. This is a mission near and dear to our hearts, especially during this unprecedented crisis.
Sailing through life is easy when our seas are calm. It’s much tougher when clouds begin to gather and the gentle winds of changes suddenly turn to a full blown gale. Now more than ever our response to changes we can’t control determine whether we’ll thrive, survive, or dive. Leadership is an action, not a position. It’s not what happens to us, it’s what we do about it.
It’s an inside job. Modern research and ancient wisdom shows that our inner lives determine our outer circumstances.
