The Resilience Mastery Toolkit for Individuals
Proactively build the resilience you need to sustain high performance and flourish even as you encounter relentless challenges, mounting complexity, and inevitable future crises.
Today, all leaders face a ‘perfect storm’ of crises that will test their strength, stamina, and adaptability for decades.
Our ceaselessly-changing volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) external reality demands that we all proactively pay attention to our abilities to bounce back from stress (being resilient), stay strong even when under intense pressure (being robust), and even find ways to grow, develop, and succeed because of extreme stress, adversity, and challenge (being regenerative).
We have created this 100% digital toolkit to help leaders build their own capacity for mastering resilience so that they can thrive not in spite of change and challenges, but because of them.
“I am stunned at the changes and the speed of them.”
HR Director, NHS
