Resilience & Inner Strength – Thriving During Uncertainty & Developing Potentials


Our world is becoming noticeably more volatile and complex and we live in uncertain times. To keep pace with the rapid changes becomes a daily challenge.
More than ever a sustainable healthy and creative mind set in dealing with pressure, conflicts, expectancies and change is required. This fascinating general coping competence is called resilience. It’s a trainable brain-ability and changes the brain. Resilience empowers you to stay psychologically, physically and socially healthy by acting like a mental immune system.
Crucially it helps you to develop your inner strength by carrying on with confidence in the face of any type of uncertainty and by cultivating a dynamic mind-set that allows us to develop our full potentials.
The interdisciplinary workshop reviews latest insights and learnings from psychology and neuroscience and provides practical strategies and self-management skills to cultivate a resilience mind-set. Finally, we will reflect and discuss on thoughts how the concept can be applied to organizations to become more resilient
