Leading through change and uncertainty

Thursday 27 Aug 2020, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

With Kirsty Ritchie from the Arts Wellbeing Collective

‘There is no guidebook for a pandemic.’ This is a phrase we have heard a lot. Whilst we have guidelines for working from home, and we have safety protocols and procedures it can feel like we have no real guidance on how to navigate the journey we are on. There are however things that we are experiencing that we have experienced at other times – we’ve just never experienced them all at once, all together and all at the same time! And even though there’s no guidebook, there are concepts we can borrow from before COVID that we can adopt to provide guidance in what is otherwise unchartered waters.

The session will cover a range of concepts and strategies to help lead your teams through change and uncertainty including:

  • The phases and stages we experience during times of change and uncertainty – what they are, what they look and feel like and what we need to help us move through them well
  • The leader’s role in helping teams navigate the phases and stages
  • Practical tips and strategies to look after the mental health and wellbeing of you and your team during times of disruption

This session is designed for Directors and senior managers within the public gallery sector. 

When: Thursday 27 August 2020
Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
Venue: Zoom
RSVP Essential: anne.robertson@pgav.ngv.vic.gov.au
