The 5 Practices of Highly Resilient People: Why Some Flourish When Others Fold

Resilience is a Team Sport: A Model for Transformation, Team Engagement, and Retention

Resilience is not an individual pursuit – it’s a team sport. The commonality amongst the most effective leaders and teams is a commitment to developing a culture of resilience, along with empathy. By fostering resilience and developing the whole person, team members move from a mentality of “crossing the finish line first” to "how we cross the finish line together”.
The 5 Practices of Highly Resilient People is a proven method to help your team enhance resilience and transform their leadership while boosting productivity, engagement, and retention, along with deepening relationships.
