Workshop Summary:

What makes some people better able to face adversity, manage everyday stress, remain mentally strong, and rebound from setbacks than others? They understand the concept of resilience and have developed and implemented strategies that enable them, in the face of difficulty, to retain flexible cognitive, behavioral and emotional responses.  In a constantly-changing, fast-paced, and high-energy environment, which is common in the workplace today, it is critical for professionals to understand the skills and abilities necessary to be resilient and employ strategies that will lead to enduring success.

This highly interactive and engaging workshop is designed to promote participants to be the best they can be – to educate and train them how to anticipate, face, and manage the expected, and unexpected, challenges in both their personal and professional lives. At the conclusion, they will have a developed plan to build long-term resilience, centered on staying calm, mentally strong, focused and productive under pressure, during adversity, and while experiencing change.
