Gonzaga University Associate Professor Sandi Wilson will lead a Thursday night series on “Resilience to Change in the Workplace” from 5-9 p.m., June 19 and July 17 in the St. Joseph Family Center Administration Building (1016 N. Superior) in Spokane. The workshops are open to the public and cost $200 each.
Change is inevitable within the earth’s seasons, in people’s lives and in their places of work. This re-energizing series will explore ways to deal with and live through the many changes that take place at work. In the first workshop, held (May 15), Wilson focuses on “The Nature of Change and Resilience.” On June 19, she will discuss “Change, Resilience and the Human Spirit"; and on July 17 she will conclude with “Re-energized by New Beginnings.” Light refreshments will be served at each session.
Wilson, an associate professor in Gonzaga’s Doctoral Program in Leadership Studies, earned a doctorate in education from Michigan State University, and has worked at Gonzaga since 1982. Throughout her time at GU, she has served terms as the associate dean of the School of Education, chair of the Doctoral Program in Leadership Studies, and committee chair for 90 dissertations — in addition to teaching. Her research interests include relational leadership, empowerment, creating and maintaining active learning organizations, and planning for change.
