Leading Through AdversityPractical emotional fitness skills to help youNataly virtual keynote 4 struggle less and optimize your team’s capacity to thrive

To lead means to positively impact other people’s capacity to thrive, which is not possible unless you prioritize your own capacity. During times of extreme uncertainty and change, this poses an even greater challenge.

In this practical and inspiring session, Nataly Kogan gives straight talk to activate leaders to make emotional fitness their top priority, so they can struggle less and have more emotional and mental energy to bring to the work and people they lead. She also shares convincing scientific research on the direct link between emotional fitness and resilience, performance, and the ability to lead through challenges.

Leaders walk away with tangible practices they can immediately use to strengthen their own emotional fitness and leadership skills and team practices to help boost the well-being and resilience of their teams.
