Physical Courage Keynote



Resilience is the ability to rebound after a setback or failure–and it might just be the single most important characteristic anyone can possess. But why do some people bounce back when it comes to conquering adversity and others give in? Fortunately, the new science of change is revealing amazing answers to this question—answers that were once thought to be inexplicable. Participants will be immersed into the fascinating world of resilience and discover how to harness its power. Drawing from the latest research, this session will captivate your attention in learning more about what it takes to prepare your people to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Learning Objectives:
  • Resilience Clarified: What resilience really is and why it’s essential to you and your workplace.
  • Resilience Personified: The tangible benefits of resilience demonstrated in one of the greatest case studies of all time.
  • Resilience Declassified: The 3 specific keys to building resilient employees and the significant outcomes you can expect to experience.
