Resonance & Resiliency: Leading
in 21st Century Organizations
What is resilience? Resilience
is the ability to adapt flexibly and effectively to the many stresses we
encounter in our complex and fast-paced lives. Fran Johnston, Ph.D., will
talk you through the building blocks of renewal and resilience we all have
access to which are the five aspects of our whole selves: our physical,
thinking, emotional, spiritual and relational selves. We will look at the
cycle of sacrifice due to power stress and the cycle of renewal we can employ
to counteract that stress. Research has shown that by bringing
mindfulness, hope and compassion to each aspect of self, a cycle of renewal can
be established and resilience can be increased. Fran will cover both
theory and the practical strategies for resilience.
