Speaker: Joan Loshek
As a learning and development practitioner, do you need resiliency to successfully perform your role year after year? What about in your personal life? Do you have the tenacity to keep pursuing your dreams? Or could you use more? What about the people in your professional and personal life? Do they have all they need? Or do they need more? If you’ve wondered about questions like these, “Build Your Resiliency Quotient” is a good place to start. In this session, participants begin their exploration by reviewing the definition of resiliency and then identifying the five beliefs and behaviors resilient people share. This session then, through a series of exercises, dives deep into the three behaviors resilient people demonstrate: purpose, support, and self-care. Finally, the session closes with an activity to help participants boost the behavior part of their resiliency quotient and help others do it too.
After the session, learners will be able to:
1. Recognize the 5 life-enhancing beliefs and behaviors of resilient people.
2. Begin the process of articulating their purpose.
3. Analyze the strengths and gaps in their support network.
4. Assess how well they’re taking care of themselves.
5. Select 1 of the behavioral-oriented resiliency characteristics and decide 1 way to cultivate it in their lives.
