Program Information

According to Paulo Coelho, “the secret to life is to fall down seven times and to get up eight times”. Resilience, from the Latin “to leap back”, is the process and experience of being disrupted by change, opportunities, stressors and adversity and accessing gifts and strengths to grow stronger. This session examines diverse aspects of resilience or “bounce-back ability” in the workplace including the importance, components and development of resilience. The session also includes a brief assessment of personal resilience as well as how to design a resilience development plan.

This is a 43 minute internet media player video of a voice over slide show.
A quiz concluding the presentation will summarize the topic and evaluate your understanding of the material.
