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 use concepts and themes from the Working Out Loud process to learn about and practice behaviors that can help 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.


  • Identify how networks can support/enhance personal & professional resilience
  • Learn how the Working Out Loud process can be used to build diverse networks


Bob Bertsch has worked in communications, education and web technology for more than 20 years. He’s currently a web technology specialist with North Dakota State University Agriculture Communication and leader of the Military Families Learning Network’s Network Literacy team.
