RESILIENCE: Resources to Bend not Break, Coping and Creating with Change (Coffee/tea/snacks)
Just enough heat... can bend steel, not enough heat... resistance and struggle occurs, too much heat... and integrity is lost. How often are we subject to forcing shapes unreachable simply because the conditions are not ripe enough? How often do we subject others and ourselves to unripe or too ripe conditions only to be disappointed or overwhelmed by outcomes?
Pressure changes everything. In a snap, a trigger event like death, divorce, merger, retirement or illness can alter your path forever. Equally, pressure overtime creates stress, which can alter your experience of mental, emotional and physical health, and undermine your sense of well-being and access to resiliency and effectiveness.
In this lively and informative interactive presentation, you'll learn to recognize the ripeness of enough, build resilience to bend not break, and work with the chaos of change that life brings.
