|LEADERSHIP IN TRYING TIMES: STAYING TRUE TO YOURSELF WHILE STAYING THE COURSE
Meeting INFinite needs with Finite resources- that is the nonprofit leader’s perpetual task. Without some guiding personal practices to manage boundaries, maintain a healthy balance, and lead your team in a way that teaches them to do the same, the road to burnout is assured. Your leadership is too important to your community and your mission to be reckless with keeping yourself focused, innovative and fruitful for the long haul. In this exciting keynote address, Francisco Gónima will help you build some critical insights into setting professional boundaries at work, for yourself and others, emotional intelligence to be able to read what your people need, and how to make a discipline of doing both.
