Resilience for Georgetown University Staff

What is the difference between people who fail and those who succeed? Research from the last 30 years suggest that it’s not education, training, or experience.  Resilience, which is the ability to bounce back and forward, helps people cope with adversity and thrive with uncertainty and change.  The format is engaging and uses real anecdotes and accelerated learning techniques to drive simple changes in behaviors and thought patterns that benefit individuals, organizations, and teams.
Participants will:

Discuss the science behind resilience
Identify the 5 key skills needed to be more resilient
Identify 2-4 new behaviors to increase resilience
Create a resilience plan
