It’s never been more important - or more challenging - for employees at all levels of the enterprise to remain focused, energized, productive and optimistic, that is, to be resilient. More than four decades of research at the University of Pennsylvania and at Adaptiv Learning Systems have proven that highly resilient people outperform – and outlast – their less resilient peers, and that resilience can be measured and boosted through training.
This brief session will introduce you to a proven method to boost your own energy, optimism and productivity despite the high levels of uncertainty and increasing pace of change at work and in our lives at large. You’ll learn a foundational skill that will help you better manage your emotions so you can feel better and do better at work and in the rest of life. Dean Becker, Adaptiv Learning Systems founder and creator of this program, will facilitate our session.
