In times of chaos and crisis, even the best leaders can falter and fail. Leadership success and survival in perilous and tumultuous circumstances improve dramatically when we have considered in advance our reactions to stress, planned to handle those responses with resilience, envisioned effective team leadership, and practiced decision making under pressure. Few leadership cohorts are more subject to intense pressure and chaotic conditions than senior public sector executives.
This short, focused seminar is designed to position experienced members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) to respond more effectively and consistently to the often tumultuous demands of leadership in today’s dynamic government organizations. It enables the most senior Federal sector leaders to understand themselves and their actions with greater clarity. It helps you gain the knowledge and experience that helps you craft your actions and deftly addresses ongoing challenges.
Working with FEI faculty, guest speakers, and with the Mountain Shepherd Wilderness Survival School (founded by former Air Force Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape – SERE – instructors) you will explore and examine your personal approaches to crisis, emotional resilience, “go to zones” under pressure, and tools for leadership success in times of crisis – while also learning invaluable wilderness/outdoors skills.
