ISAC Virtual Leadership Track: Leading in Times of Crisis

Register today and join us on August 26 and 27 for the ISAC Virtual Leadership Track: Leading in Times of Crisis, presented by NACo and the Professional Development Academy. This two-part track will feature interactive discussions among county leaders and experts facing crisis-level challenges, concerns, and complexities across Iowa and the United States of America. The discussion will focus on resolving issues, not just talking about them; planning and executing change, not just sitting idly by; and setting a new standard of excellence, not just the status quo. In short, the focus during these times of crisis is on high performance leaders, having a bias toward leading, and modeling the way with positive leadership.

Moderating this discussion is Dr. Tim Rahschulte, Chief Executive Officer at the Professional Development Academy and Chief Architect of the NACo High Performance Leadership program. A facilitated panel of county leaders and experts will provide insights, perspectives, and recommended leadership best practices to navigate during this time.
