Speaker: Christopher Ridenour

Session Description: Few things encourage "shift" quite like a global pandemic, political pandemonium, civil unrest, and lest we forget, murder hornets. Despite the stress and exhaustion that always accompanies change, this is not the time to trade in your credentials for a one-way airline ticket and butterfly net! There's no one chapter in the leadership manual that prepares us for enduring mayhem and change. Through it all, have you grown more patient, more resilient, or do the words "punch drunk" and "jetlagged" better describe your current mood? Whether you thrive during chaos, or not, rest assured there is some other tribulation waiting to pounce and offer more...uh, "growth"! Friends, hold tight, Triumph Over Change, 2021 and Beyond! is less keynote than it is revival

They are starving for greater connection, elevated compassion, and confident optimism in addition to our guidance. Unleashing hope and higher performance from others, however, fails without our courage to self-assess and course correct
