Rick Maher to Present Building Resilience Workshop for WPTI

Posted Jul 07, 2022 by Rick

As part of our work to bring innovation and agility to the professional staff of the Nation’s Workforce Development System, AHC has partnered with New York’s Workforce Professional Training Institute (WPTI) to bring a high-intensity, research-based workshop to their clientele.

“Building Your Change Resilience” is a professional development session designed for employees at all levels and builds awareness of their individual change response. The session features proprietary research of the characteristics of both individual and organizational resilience and includes tools to help participants gain new insight on their tendencies in dealing with change and uncertainty. AHC’s President & CEO, Richard “Rick”) Maher will present the session on Wednesday, July 13th virtually.

“I really enjoy the opportunity to engage with professionals in the Workforce Development System. These folks are engaged every day in helping to connect skilled workers to the needs of employers to drive economic prosperity in our communities and help workers skill-up to meet the needs of a dynamically changing labor market,” said Maher. “They are working under great stress and facing disruptive changes in the needs of workers and employers alike. We want to help build their capacity to cope – but more – to thrive through uncertainty and change.”

Each participant will be offered free access to AHC’s online Individual Resiliency Assessment to gain insight to their natural strengths and areas for professional development for better coping with change and uncertainty. Finally, we’ll explore the Six Traits of Agile OrganizationsÓ and the leader’s role in curating a culture that better supports employee resilience through change.
