How to boost your resilience to setbacks and uncertainty

Disappointments, frustrations and periods of uncertainty are inevitable in any modern job. Perhaps a project falls short of its goals. Maybe there’s tense situation over resourcing, or a question-mark over your role. At times like these, we all want to respond wisely. And yet, studies have found that our brains don’t perform as well when we’re stressed or irritated – and that can make it hard for us to do the right thing when we’re under pressure. Luckily, behavioral science research points to a number of techniques we can use to stay centered and sharp while navigating tricky situations, as well as effective ways to move forward after the storm has passed. You’ll walk out of this workshop knowing exactly how to use them in your own life and work.
