What is the difference between people who fail and those that succeed? The research from the last 30 years suggests that it’s not education, training, or experience. Resilience (the ability to bounce back and forward) helps people cope with adversity and thrive with uncertainty and change. The “5 Secrets of Resilience” program was designed to be engaging and uses real anecdotes and accelerated learning techniques to drive simple changes in behaviors and thought patterns that benefit individuals, organizations, and teams.
The topics include psychological flexibility, optimism, curiosity, positive emotions, and supportive relationships. Participants will have the chance to learn about science-backed ‘checklists’ to improve their resilience in only minutes a day.
- Discuss the science behind resilience
- Identify five key skills needed to be more resilient
- Become a more resilient leader
- Lead effectively through change
- Define resilient behaviors and thought patterns
- Identify 2-4 new behaviors to increase resilience
- Create a resilience plan
