Building Resilience

Course Code: CEPS 1038EO
Change and adversity are unavoidable. What counts is how you deal with them. Some people summon their strength and move on. Others have trouble bouncing back. The difference between the two is resilience, an ability to recover quickly from difficult situations. Kathryn Peterson is particularly well versed in the subject. Her workshop will provide background into resilience research and offer you a path that helps you draw on your strengths and acquire the tools you need to build resilience in your workplace. Ready?
