Redefine: Leadership in Times of Turbulence, Trouble & Turmoil

Burnout and stress are at all-time highs across all professions because we live and work in rapidly changing times and struggle with how to respond. Consequently, people have lost their power to be motivated and productive, which creates the desire for ‘quiet quitting’ and ‘quiet firing.’ Additionally, a lack of trust and increased self-doubt limits one's ability to thrive, leading to disengaged performance. In this session, Dr. Jones will help participants to REDEFINE for the sake of reconnecting to the purpose, colleagues, and mission of their organization through transformational leadership, resulting in MORE creativity, MORE resistance to stress, and MORE flexibility. 


Participants will learn:

  • three factors affecting the relationship between transformational leadership and exceptional performance

  • the difference between the behaviors that cause stress and the behaviors that conquer stress

  • seven ways leaders REDEFINE and thrive in times of turbulence, trouble, and turmoil
