How to Leverage Resilience Strategies and Performance Science the Army Way

Recorded On: 10/30/2018


In a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world where associations and their members are forced to adapt and respond to change, leaders need more than tactical and technical skills. Melissa Schreibstein, M.S., ACC, leadership coach and resilience trainer for the U.S. Army, will offer strategic planning for the critical mental, emotional, and social elements of workplace performance. The same strategies that U.S. Army leaders use to bolster resilience can help associations gain a mental edge and drive innovation. 

Looking through the lens of two major theories that underlie resilience and performance science, webinar attendees will be able to:

  • Assess the quality of motivation and the culture of innovation within their organizations.
  • Explore how the Self-Determination Theory of Motivation (Deci & Ryan) and the Broaden and Build Theory of Positive Emotions (Fredrickson) can help set the conditions for an innovative culture.
  • Define tangible strategies they, as leaders, can put into action immediately to establish work environments where innovation thrives.
