Lessons from the Pandemic – Resilience
February 25, 2021
There is no doubt that post-secondary institutions in all countries rose to the occasion as the pandemic bedded in and spread rapidly and widely. Our institutions proved their resilience, at least in the short term, but there are many lessons to be learned and shared. This first webinar in our WFCP – PIN series seeks to bring those lessons to the fore, through the stories of our members.
In particular, given the disruption and uncertainty brought about by covid-19, and the absence of a “playbook” for responding to the pandemic, what type of leadership worked best, and what are the implications of this for leadership development for the future – given that similar disruptions may well occur? How do post-secondary organisations ensure they are prepared for the next crisis?
This webinar, which emphasised personal leadership, was anchored by two very experienced leaders: Denise Amyot and Joe Sertich. However, the intention was for this to be a participative and interactive event in which we will hear our colleagues’ stories and from which we will create a “playbook” for “next time”.
This webinar is the first in a series of three, leading up to the WFCP – PIN Leadership Summit in Maui, October 2021.
These leadership events constitute the 2021 activities of the WFCP Leadership Affinity Group.
