Beyond Grit: Resilience In The New Normal

About the Workshop

Our modern workplace cultures often tell us that in order to achieve optimal life and job satisfaction, we need to “leave work at work.” The reality is far more difficult than buzzwords suggest, especially in high-performance, high-stress roles and teams. This workshop focuses on actionable strategies for engaging personal boundaries and increasing intentionality in interpersonal and professional spaces. It will also cover nontraditional methodology for tapping into the neuroscience of both performance-boosting and resilience-enhancing behaviors.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the neuroscience behind how our brains react to uncertainty and distractions and how to “bio-hack” for improved performance
  • Identify and practice resilience-supporting techniques (core skill development), building a personalized portfolio of actionable resilience-enhancing skills to improve performance and interpersonal relationships
  • Strengthen transition skills to increase situational intentionality, with specific focus on what “work-life” balance really means and how to achieve it
  • Learn and understand how to leverage unconventional methods of resilience and reconnection to enhance and improve both professional and personal outcomes
