Join Caitie Whelan, founder and "noter-in-chief" of the Lightning Notes, for this free professional development workshop in the Emerging Leaders series.

Participants will hear powerful stories, perform engaging exercises, and leave with practical tools to:

  • Take smart risks consistent with their values

  • Develop resilience through strategies to handle fear, failure, rejection, and criticism

  • Establish self-care practices to reduce stress and burnout 

The Lightning Notes features short daily posts to help us move the world forward. It features great ideas and striking stories to remind us that we matter and that improving the world is our matter.

Before her tenure at the Lightning Notes, Whelan was a senior foreign policy advisor in Congress, cofounded a school in India with a community of lower caste musicians, and raised pigs in Italy. She is a graduate of Brown University.
