The Department of Management invites you to our Leadership and Resilience Panel Discussion as part of Antioch University New England’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
Bouncing back. Maintaining continuity of purpose and functional effectiveness. Persisting and thriving. These are all ways of describing resilience. In a world increasingly challenged by change and disruption, resilience is a critical competency for individuals, teams, organizations, communities – and leaders.
In this session, four thoughtful and skillful leaders – Robert Bull (MS ’09), Susan Calegari (MS ’10), Terry Robinson (MBA ’12), and Melinda Treadwell (AUNE Vice President for Academic Affairs) – will discuss how we can support resilience in ourselves and in our organizations in the face of today’s challenges. Our afternoon will include a discussion among our four panelists, opportunities for questions and comments, and the chance to reconnect with Antioch colleagues.
