Leading with Resilience: Coming Back from Challenge and Adversity
The Wharton School
June 13, 2006
This one-day intensive conference is devoted to exchanging ideas about how managers can lead with resilience and come back from challenge and adversity, whether in the private, public, or nonprofit sectors. Presenters draw upon their own experiences and those of others who have faced difficult decisions under demanding circumstances. They identify the capabilities that are required to lead a group or organization through an uncertain and challenging period — and the personal capacities essential for remaining affirmative and persistent in an unpredictable and stressful environment. The 10th Annual Wharton Leadership Conference is an official Wharton 125 event.
Wharton 125: In 1881, American entrepreneur and industrialist Joseph Wharton had the most radical idea in the history of business: the establishment of the world's first collegiate school of business at the University of Pennsylvania. No other single idea — and no single institution — has had such a dramatic, transformational effect on the way business is conducted in the global market. In our 125th anniversary year, we invite you to help us celebrate our ongoing achievements in the practice of global business. It all started right here at Wharton – first.
