Additional Information

Event Sponsor

Research has shown that high levels of resilience can deliver valuable work-related outcomes for individuals, helping people recover faster from difficulties, reduce stress, improve job performance, develop positive attitudes, and sustain higher levels of wellbeing and fulfillment at work. Resilience has implications for business too, especially during times of challenge and change. Having employees who are resilient under duress, and who can adapt quickly to changing circumstances, can benefit not only individuals but teams and the organization as a whole. In today's world of constant change and with continued pressure to do more with less and be effective virtually, HR and business professionals, in particular, are even more in need of adaptability through agility, speed, and flexibility of thought.  

Join us as Deborah Jann presents a model of resilience that supports participants in recovering from setbacks and rebounding to higher levels of success. The business-focused content supports us in enhancing our personal resilience so we can strengthen our overall wellbeing and adaptability which drives more innovative solutions and better business results.
