    Dr. Doug Walker will discuss how confident leadership in the time of crisis is crucial for the survival of organizations facing difficult and uncertain times. Although some factors in response and recovery to crisis are out of a leader’s control, there are ways to manage uncertainty using five basic elements known to support immediate and long-term “resilience”. How leaders communicate, conduct themselves, and manage their mental wellness during times of risk and crisis can have a significant impact on how their school community reacts and responds which in turn impact the overall long-term health and wellness of the school community. It is critical that leadership understands that communication, in and of itself, is an effective mental wellness intervention. Also managing one’s mental wellness, and the manner in which one conducts oneself will also influence whether one's leadership is strengthened or diminished throughout a school community's response and recovery to the large-scale impact of COVID-19.
