Riding the Crisis Roller Coaster: Positioning Yourself Emotionally Amidst Volatility -- A FAN Webinar with Nancy Koehn, Ph.D.

Covid-19, the massive economic fall-out from the pandemic, the campaign for justice and equality, and the upcoming national election are more than seismic events with enormous practical implications. All of these happenings also have a huge impact on our emotional well-being: day-to-day and over the weeks, months and now, seasons.

We are proud to support FAN (Family Action Network) as they welcome back Nancy Koehn, Ph.D., one of their most compelling speakers on the topic of crisis leadership. Her 2017 FAN talk on her book Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times was riveting, dynamic, and keenly astute, and it stirred the hearts and minds of those present. Prof. Koehn also appeared at a July 2020 FAN webinar that was a powerful, incisive exploration of managing self and others during a pandemic.  For this webinar, Prof. Koehn will talk about the emotional challenges and possibilities of the crisis, the critical importance of tending to our emotions as well as our physical health during this moment, and a series of easily accessible tools and behaviors we can each use to be more resilient, connected, empathic, empowered, disciplined, and sure-footed. Register for this free webinar HERE.

Following Koehn's talk, she will be interviewed by Manuel Cuevas-Trisán, vice president and chief human resources officer, Northwestern University.

This event will be recorded and available later on FAN's website and YouTube channel.

BONUS AFTER-HOURS EVENT: Attendees who purchase a copy of Koehn's book Forged in Crisis from The Book Stall are invited to attend an AFTER-HOURS event hosted by Koehn and Cuevas-Trisan that will start immediately after the webinar. You can buy the book here.
