Research suggests that when it comes to effective leadership, resiliency – the ability to not only bounce back from adversity but to learn and grow from it – is a more important trait for leaders to possess than experience, education, training, or even intelligence.

ICMA, together with Women Leading Government, presents this workshop as part of the 2016 Regional Summits, where you'll learn the common traits and practices that encourage resiliency, how to cultivate them, and how to move from ideas to results. You Have What It Takes to Be A Resilient Leader includes a diverse panel of representatives from top positions in city and county management, women in non-traditional department head positions, and executive recruiters who can advise on effectively positioning for that next career move.

You'll also have the opportunity to discuss how to get out of your comfort zone, trusting your instincts, and responding to emerging issues with creative ideas.

Fee: Free - Registration is required (separate from EPLI or Summit)

**Note: No shows will be billed for the cost of the lunch**

Who Should Attend: This event is aimed at all local government management professionals aspiring to take the next step in their career.

Moderator: Pat Martel, ICMA President, City Manager of Daly City, CA
