COVID-19 is an extreme example of how the world has become more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous than ever.

Join the London Chapter for a webinar where our speaker Jo Owen will explore how some people thrive in challenging conditions and adversity, while others struggle.

You will discover tried and tested exercises which help you build resilience and cope with an ever more challenging world.

Questions which the webinar will address include:

  • What is resilience?
  • How can I choose how I feel?
  • What are the big five mind traps to avoid?
  • Can optimism be learned, and how?
  • How can I deal with burn out?
  • How can I deal with negative emotions?

This seminar is based on original research with leaders from many walks of life, combined with the latest cutting edge research from around the world. The seminar is intended to be practical and interactive and carries the risk that it might even be enjoyable.
