Resilience for Success
Strong resilience is critical to managing daily stress and uncertainty – whether you’re an individual contributor, a manager, or the CEO. Strengthening resilience represents a leading employee development opportunity that brings immediate and measurable results in these key areas:
Productivity – inspired, high energy, focused employees
Retention – high performers find new opportunities to contribute
Collaboration – authentic communication and teamwork
Engagement – greater emotional connection to the company
Change Management – confident employees leading change
Don and Betsy are resilience experts with decades of leadership experience working in Fortune 100 companies. Don thrived in management positions focused on thought leadership while Betsy excelled leading multifunctional teams through complex initiatives.
But it was a catastrophic house fire that caused life-threatening burn injuries to more than 40% of Don’s body that presented them with the most daunting project of their lives.
Working together as a team facing the uncertainty of a new life, they came to redefine resilience embodied in three fundamentals – how reshaping fear works to motivate, that relationships matter for any accomplishment, and how great opportunity is realized through meaningful change in perspective.
