Bouncing Back: Developing Resilience Amid Challenges and Change

Challenges – check. Change – check and double check. Bouncing back? Maybe???

The real answer to that question is a resounding YES! Bouncing back sounds difficult, doesn’t it? So much comes at us these days in the realm of challenges and change. But let’s think about a rubber ball; it bounces…and bounces…and bounces some more. That’s because it has inherent properties that not only allow it to bounce, but make it impossible not to.

Okay, Linda, what does that have to do with me bouncing back? Even if we don’t have inherent properties that will cause us to bounce back automatically, there are attitudes and habits we can create within ourselves that will help us bounce back, sometimes to our original height, sometimes higher.

In this session, we’ll have an opportunity to spend some time in that space we rarely have time for – that valuable self-reflection mode. We will discover the why of needing resilience, the how of developing it, the obstacles that we may need to overcome, and then we’ll develop an action plan so that we can begin working on it, pronto! After all, challenges and change are not going away. Why not be ready to bounce when they come?
