A strong support network can help you be resilient in times of change, but what can you do to make sure those networks are there when you need them? In this interactive webinar, we’ll use concepts and themes from the Working Out Loud process to learn about and practice behaviors that can help you build networks to support your personal and professional resilience.
John Stepper developed the Working Out Loud process to make organizational cultures more collaborative and innovative by showing people a more engaged way of working that gave them access to more opportunities. Along with colleagues from Cooperative Extension and the Military Families Learning Network, Bob Bertsch has adapted concepts from the Working Out Loud to give helping professionals a better sense of control and purpose in their work.

Jessica Beckendorf became passionate about communities while growing up as a military kid, moving frequently and living in communities of various sizes. After obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Urban and Regional Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, she proceeded to work in just about every sector of community development – Geographic Information Systems, urban planning and zoning, and economic development. In 2014, Jessica finished her Master of Arts degree in Communications & Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University, and began her journey as an educator with the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension where she seeks to bridge her community systems experience with communications and relationship development to build social capital and local leadership for more resilient communities.
