The Resilience Advantage™ Workshop

Strengthening resilience has become an important strategy for improving personal and professional effectiveness, productivity, health and well-being. The Resilience Advantage training program provides a practical framework of self-regulation tools and resilience-building practices that dramatically help individuals gain more poise and clarity in the face of change and overwhelm. Improved composure facilitates clearer thinking and a stronger identity with purpose and core values. View a more complete flyer here.
