Extension educators prepare leaders to navigate challenging times and evolving circumstances. Change can occur unexpectedly, as with a natural disaster or the closing of a major employer. Trends like an aging population or a decline in community volunteerism can drive change that is anticipated and planned for. Social, economic or other change may even be welcomed.
We provide tools to lead and manage all kinds of change with confidence. Our work with leaders focuses on:
scenario-planning to prepare for potential impacts of change
goal-setting to address strategic opportunities and threats
resilience and mindfulness to care for yourself and those you lead
lessons from leaders who have adapted and helped their organization or community successfully pivot and find success
Contact your county educator to discuss how Extension can help you hone your skills of adaptive leadership and lead confidently in times of uncertainty and change.
