Resilient Leadership through Turbulent Times
a presentation for FMs by Lehan Stemmet
Auckland - Hamilton - Christchurch - Dunedin - Wellington
Hi ,

Stress is a major factor in physical and mental health globally and is also considered a workplace risk within the NZ Health and Safety Act. Resilience is a key skill in our personal and professional lives to help mitigate the impact of stress. It helps people to perform optimally despite the challenges they may be facing. Leaders have an additional challenge to also lead others through an ever-changing world, but it doesn't have to be so stressful.

This presentation will explore stress, coping strategies and resilience from a leadership perspective. You will come away with a clear definition of stress and resilience, applicable to your FM context, but sufficiently broad to also help you in various areas of life. You will also learn about the major research-informed tools you could use to navigate through challenges and help your teams and colleagues.

Presented by Lehan Stemmet - an expert in organisational and personal development who has a deep understanding of stress, resilience and coping strategies as well as wide-ranging leadership and management experience across multiple sectors. There will be time for Q&A to address more specific and individual contexts.

We kick the morning off with a light buffet breakfast and a chance to catch up with your FM colleagues, followed by the presentation
