‘Flip THIS’ Adversity to Achievement
A Proven Approach to Strengthen Resilience and Succeed at the Highest Levels
Every organization faces challenges and today’s pace of change is staggering. Adversity of all sizes is sidetracking our workforce each day. Think personal medical issues, difficult customers, or product failures. Data shows our workforce is struggling. A lack of resilience is eating away at shareholder value, yet most organizations are not even aware of it. Without a deliberate framework in place, corporations are losing billions of dollars in lost productivity, low engagement and sinking morale. Nina calls this a ‘Resilience Epidemic’ and shares with audiences a systematic way to defend, conquer, and grow from challenges. Organizations can be liberated from the restrictive forces of adversity, allowing them to recover quickly, learn and ultimately grow stronger.
