SESSION TWO
February 28
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 7:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
Owning Our Stories: A Pathway to Authentic Leadership
Chief Kristen Roman, UW Madison Police

Author Brene Brown says, “To be alive is to be vulnerable; to be a leader is to be vulnerable every minute of the day. You don’t get to opt out.” Authentic leadership requires courage, emphasizes self-awareness and promotes legitimacy through relational transparency and fair-mindedness. In this session, participants will explore the process of cultivating authentic leadership and learn the importance of owning our stories. Understanding that balance is vital to career endurance and mistakes are an essential ingredient of success, authentic leadership asks us that we let ourselves be seen and sit with discomfort. In so doing, our vulnerabilities have the power to lead us to our greatest strengths.  SESSION 2 - 2017-18 Executive Leadership Registration

Mindfulness: It’s More Than Meditation
Julia Yates, UW Health
Learn to use mindful awareness to examine stress reactions and resiliency tools from a place of non-judgmental curiosity.

Openly and honestly explore triggers and reactions to stress , while identifying what works to bring us back to a state of wellness and resiliency. We all react to stress, and we all need personal resiliency strategies that work for us.  SESSION 3 - 2017-18 Executive Leadership Registration
