Resilience in Times of Change: Impact on Performance and Well-Being

We live in a world of constant change. Adapting quickly and being resilient can improve our effectiveness and productivity and help us avoid becoming overwhelmed. Resilience is a person’s ability to bounce back from challenge, change and adversity. We all have the ability to develop personal resilience, and this session aims to help participants explore aspects of change that may be stressful for different people, the impact of that stress, and how to remain resilient in the face of uncertainty.
