Please Join Us for Dinner at Community Connections: Leadership and Change
“Adaptive Leadership: Understanding Our Leadership Challenges and Ourselves”
A Special Extended Conference with Maya Bernstein
Co-Founder and Associate, UpStart Bay Area

Presented by the Commission on Jewish Education and Leadership, part of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford

Adaptive leadership theory posits that leadership is directly connected to facilitating change. In this conference, we’ll explore core concepts of adaptive leadership theory. You’ll examine your own tolerance for leading change, learn to think differently about leadership challenges facing our community, and practice applying the theory to your own life.
