Resilience and thriving in the face of change and adversity
The only constant in life is change. And we’re not always really happy about that! But when we lean into change and embrace the opportunities it offers, we move toward a state of co-creation and away from feelings of isolation and powerlessness. And as we become more resilient and resourceful, we gain a sense of agency and impact in our lives, and we’re better able to help others do the same. In this session, participants learn about empirically-based resilience practices for thriving through adversity and for supporting others along their own path to adaptation and commitment. These solutions draw from various disciplines including neuroscience, positive psychology, genetics, well-being, engagement, and human performance. Participants will have access to download an 11×17 learning map for working through the exercises, starting to create their own resilience development plan, and for later referencing an online repository of many resilience and thriving resources (articles, books, tools, templates, etc.).
