Chamber Training Series featuring Trevor Smith "Your Well-being and How to Balance it all While Thriving at Work"
Join us for this Wednesday's Chamber Training Series as we learn about our well-being and how to balance it all while thriving at work.
Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on.
This lecture will focus on the redeeming qualities of resilience and provide helpful insight as to how one can become more resilient and turn hardship into an empowering interpretation enabling them to THRIVE! This lecture will also provide helpful resources that can be implemented at any business to cultivate a culture of health promotion and wellness.
