The American Psychological Association defines "resilience" as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as an ability to recover from or adjust easily to change or misfortune. Research shows us that resilience is ordinary, not extraordinary, and that people commonly demonstrate it; yet stepping into a supervisory position often presents factors that challenge each of us, regardless of our respective lines of work. It can be lonely at the top. In this program participants will focus on the potential for personal burnout and will learn the answers to such questions as who is and who tends to be most resilient and why. The program offers a five step process for building resiliency amid increasing demands. Topics will include clarifying personal missions, identifying the values behind motivation, surviving change, managing time, energy and stress and remembering how to play. The process of developing resilience is personal journey. Participants will complete individual assessments and will leave the program with personal action plans developed during the session.
