Leadership Webinar and Networking event: Leading and Thriving in Challenging Times

03 December 2020

Around the world the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging leaders to step up like never before. Senior leaders of government, healthcare and business are in the spotlight but the need for leadership does not stop with them. People everywhere can accept the challenge of leadership – the challenge to step up in your workplace or community and be a force for good at a difficult time.

This webinar is for you if you are just setting out as a leader, or you are an experienced leader, willing to share your experience with The Wellington Community. The webinar will present recent research on leadership that enables thriving and will include small group discussions to evaluate the applicability of this research to your own contexts. The discussions will also provide the opportunity to find common ground and explore contemporary leadership opportunities, building your networks.

The webinar and networking will be led by Katy Granville-Chapman and Emmie Bidston, Associate Fellows at the Oxford Character Project (interdisciplinary initiative at the University of Oxford) and co-authors of  ‘Leader: Know, love and inspire your people‘ (Crownhouse, 2020). Katy is also a research affiliate at the University of Oxford’s Wellbeing Research Centre and a Doctoral Teaching Fellow at Oxford; she is the co-founder of Global Social Leaders, which has participants in 105 countries in all world regions. Katy and Emmie co-chair the ‘Leadership for Flourishing’ group for the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University. Katy is Deputy Head (TS performance and development), and Emmie is Head of Economics and Co-Director (with Katy) of the Wellington Leadership and Coaching Institute.
