What is a Kicknote?
A kickoff address from a visionary educator. A keynote provides a key message for a conference, but we feel that ALL messages and sessions at this event are KEY to increase effectiveness at providing leadership in distance learning.

Resilient Leadership in the Face of Uncertainty and Turmoil
In this time of physical isolation and societal turmoil, social connection and self regulation has never been more important. Leaders are asked to trail blaze new paths that are inherently uncertain as the people they lead project their fears and anger onto them. Your capacity to lead nowdays is directly correlated to your capacity to stay resilient in the face of the unknown, to deepen connections with your people, and to maintain your wellbeing. In our short time together, you’re going to get two strategies to deepen connections and bolster your resilience. My intention is for us to have fun together, to gain useful skills, and to move through our adversity with care and guidance.
