Resilience: The key to an Engaged and High Performing Workforce

Employees are being asked to constantly adapt and perform, while the ground under them is continually shifting. The ability to move through daily challenges—both small and large— is critical to thriving and flourishing in a turbulent world. In this webinar, Resilience expert Dr. Linda Hoopes, will describe the elements of resilience as a core competency and share scientific evidence to demonstrate its impact on performance and well-being. You will learn the relationship between resilience, engagement, and burnout, and gain an understanding of the strategies organizations and leaders can apply to grow resilience in their workforce. You will also have an opportunity to reflect on your own resilience and identify activities for personal development.
