*Thriving Through Resilience
Event Category 


Flexibility and buoyancy are key in the dictionary definition of resilience: the ability to return to original form after being bent or stretched; to recover readily from adversity. Most of us can benefit from cultivating resilience as we continue to navigate an extraordinarily challenging period of time.  

Join our interactive virtual workshop to develop your flexible, buoyant resilience, which can be useful in high-stress work environments. We will explore your natural resilience strengths, along with the practical skills and tools that build on those qualities, and how to leverage those strengths in your personal and professional lives. We will engage positive habits and practices you are drawn to, which easily blend into your life. They range from body, mind, and emotional nourishment that speak to you, to everyday mindfulness. We will also look at what sabotages your resilience, from self-criticism to not doing what you think you should to take care of yourself. You’ll leave this training with a resilience checklist that reflects your life, your needs, and builds on your strengths.
