Training Opportunity: Lessons from New Zealand


Putting the “How-to” in Resilience:
Lessons from New Zealand

Join us on Thursday, July 11 from 3-5 pm at George Mason University, Arlington campus  for an interactive discussion with Dr. John Vargo, co-leader of the Resilient Organizations program at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. 

For the past eight years, Resilient Organizations has asked: What is it that makes some organizations able not only to survive, but thrive in the face of adversity?  The program has transformed research into resilience tools including:

·         Resilience Benchmark Tool allowing organizations to perform a self-analysis of resilience strengths and weaknesses and support a business case for internal resilience initiatives.
·         Resilience Quick Assessment Tool providing high and low performance benchmarks for 13 resilience indicators.
·         Resilience Thumbprint Survey creating a 5 minute snapshot survey that covers key resilience indicators, especially targeted for small and medium sized enterprises. 

Please join us for an informative session and an international perspective!

Where: George Mason University, Arlington, VA, Hazel Hall, Room 215
