NCOSS "Leading in Crisis Recovery" Series: Overview

5 June 2020 - 1:30pm – 5 June 2020 - 2:30pm

A MULTIPART ONLINE LEARNING SERIES, FREE OF CHARGE & EXCLUSIVELY FOR NCOSS MEMBERS.

Leading our teams in recovery after a significant crisis such as COVID-19 is undoubtedly daunting. Many leaders feel pressure to 'return to normal' as painlessly as possible.

On top of this pressure, the emotional impact of the crisis may be lurking in our minds: demotivation, disconnectedness, anxiety, vicarious trauma, among others.

As community leaders who have led our teams in delivering essential services in a time of crisis, what learnings can we share with one another?

And how do we embed these learnings in our forward planning, so we don't repeat mistakes of the past?

To bring these important conversations and our ideas together, NCOSS has engaged a number of learning facilitators who are experts in their field and are passionate about community services. Read on for more.

NCOSS "Leading in Crisis Recovery" 3: Rebuilding Workplace Morale

24 June 2020 - 1:00pm – 24 June 2020 - 2:30pm

PART 3 OF A WEBINAR SERIES, FREE OF CHARGE & EXCLUSIVELY FOR NCOSS MEMBERS.

Returning to work after a significant crisis such as COVID-19 will take time, and we may be faced with having to create a “new normal”.

In many instances, this would include an increase in remote working, which presents new challenges in itself.

Yet the factors that underpin high performance remain the same. To be ‘high-performing’, teams must feel that they are conveying value and have a clear sense of purpose.

In this 90-minute session, you will discuss the challenges of remote work, and how you can adapt in order to build well-motivated teams regardless of each one's location.
