The Brilliance of Resilience: Beating Burnout In Challenging Projects

Let’s face it: Change is, well… CHALLENGING. So how do you keep you and your team moving forward smoothly when a project deadline is moved up and everyone has to scramble to meet it? Or when a key team member left and you’re struggling to fill the gap? 

Answer: Be a strong, adaptable leader that cultivates resilient teams. 

This session explores the relationship of adversity, resilience, and growth. Approached from a growth mindset, challenges are actually reasons to learn. They show us where our current limits are, then guide us through those limitations into a realm of new tools, skills, and experiences. This open, honest, and funny talk teaches how to choose to growth and learning over burnout and frustration in our biggest leadership challenges. Participants will learn to:

  • Differentiate types of adversity and responses to them
  • Generate powerful conversations that shatter stigmas around adversity
  • Explore your own relationship with adversity, resilience and growth
  • Utilize tools and strategies to overcome personal adversity
