Join our Cultivating Emotional Agility to Drive Innovation Free Webinar with Janet Sernack and Chris Gildersleeve

In our last free Making Innovation a Habit webinar, we shared how important it is for people, leaders, and teams to cultivate mental toughness. This is because applications and research show that mental toughness is directly and closely related to improving performance, behaviours, well being, and encourages more smart risk-taking and initiative-taking.

To drive innovation, paradoxically, mental toughness needs to be balanced with emotional agility and integrated through consciousness to affect the mindset and behaviour changes required to successfully drive real and sustainable innovation. 

We decided to further support you, our community, through designing our next free “Making Innovation a Habit” webinar in our transition series, “Cultivating emotional agility to drive innovation” to compliment the concepts, principles, and techniques introduced in our mental toughness webinar.

Join Chris Gildersleeve and Janet Sernack for 45 minutes to learn the foundations for emotional agility and simple strategies that can be leveraged to cultivate emotional agility to drive innovation.

It’s on Thursday, 8th October, at 8.00 pm Sydney and Melbourne, 10.00 am London, 11.00 am Amsterdam, at 1.00pm Abu Dhabi and at 5.00 pm Hong Kong.

We’ll explore strategies by taking both a business and a human perspective in supporting your people and teams to make fundamental changes to the way they think about problems and challenges. By sharing the tactics and strategies that emotionally agile people use to master the innovation rollercoaster, as well to flow with disruption,  identify, and capitalise on opportunities, they might otherwise miss.

  • How being both mentally tough and emotionally agile will drive your ability to innovate
  • What are the key components of emotional agility
  • How to identify where you can lift your emotional agility
  • Three things you can do to improve your mental toughness and emotional agility and ability to drive innovation

Leave with practical ideas to and actionable tips to improve resilience, manage and lead transitions, and coach people and teams through disruption, and drive organisational change, adapt, innovate and grow, during these challenging and difficult times.
