Title:
From Surviving to Thriving – Building Skills for Resiliency
Topic:
From Surviving to Thriving – Building Skills for Resiliency Come laugh and learn some coping strategies that will bring peace and joy to your busy, stressful life.
Summary:
Come laugh and learn some coping strategies that will bring peace and joy to your busy, stressful life. A century of research tells us that there are four experiences that create a strong human being: Competence, Power, Significance, and Virtue. Learn how to foster these experiences for yourself and others. Discover specific habits, skills and attitudes that build resiliency at all ages. Learn how to transform challenges into growth and find motivation and meaning in your life. “You are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. Like a muscle, you can build it up, draw on it when you need it. In that process you will figure out who you really are—and you just might become the very best version of yourself.” Sheryl Sandberg
