Redefining Resilience with Rumeet Billan, Ph.D 

Missed the session? Don't stress! Watch the recording here!

Join special guest Rumeet Billan, Ph.D. as she leads a workshop focusing on resilience.

Resilience is a powerful skill that can be developed. It is the ability to bounce back from obstacles and setbacks to achieve higher levels of performance. It requires developing positive adaptation processes to help overcome the challenges that we face, and the use of positive experiences to build confidence in our strengths and abilities. It also involves interventions that support and develop self-trust, objective reasoning, perseverance and possibility thinking. 
Research shows that these capabilities can be learned, and this workshop focuses on how we can develop strategies to build our resilience by examining the capabilities of psychological capital, and improve the experiences that we have to reach our full potential.
