How To Develop Modern Day Resilience

  • 13th August 2020
  • 15:00 - 16:00
  • This webinar will be hosted on Zoom


It’s not what happens to us that truly defines our destiny but how we choose to react to what happens to us. In this session our guest speaker, Andy Nicol, will contrast Resilience Through The Years from ‘Old School Resilience’ that was driven by Strong and Ruthless leadership and the ‘win at all costs’ mentality to how the world has changed to ‘Modern Day Resilience’ with Strong and Considerate inclusive leaders and the ‘winning together' mentality.


Webinar objectives:

  • To appreciate that setbacks are part of life and that how we react will define us.
  • To understand what resilience is and to discover tools and techniques you can apply to improve yours.
  • To encourage you to be ‘strong and considerate’ with a ‘winning together mentality’.
