Presentation: Creating a Culture of Resilience

Presentation: Creating a Culture of Resilience
Resilience is the ability to bend without breaking, to draw upon internal and external resources and to bounce back. We can bolster our individual resilience as well as create a culture of resilience. Discover the individual and organizational skills that strengthen resilience within yourself and your organization. Presented by Moira A. Muhlhern, Ph.D.
