Are you too tired, busy or burned-out to think big? What are you doing about it? An estimated $62 billion per year in corporate health and safety costs are due to exhaustion and burnout. It is critical for leaders to develop the organizational capacity to not only perform under stress, but to thrive in the face of it. It’s time to create a culture of resilience for long-term success. We refer to this as a “Got Your Back Culture,” characterized by systems that prioritize and promote resilience and focus on the value of incremental improvements. 

Attend the Northeast Iowa Community College Business and Community Solutions Business Summit. The high-energy and interactive virtual event will:

  • Increase your performance and cultivate greater resilience
  • Teach you to use change to create new opportunities in your business and life
  • Strengthen your voice as a purpose-driven leader
  • Explore the experiences and perspectives of business professionals facing the same challenges 
  • Provide tools and best practices to innovate leadership strategies
