The buzz: Bouncing back. Stress is such an epidemic that 78% of employers in the 2013/2014 Staying@Work™ Survey identified it as the top workforce risk factor. Are some of us better equipped to be resilient, while others are more prone to feel overwhelmed? The bigger question: is resiliency a genetic trait or a set of skill-based competencies that can be taught, practiced and used daily? The experts speak. Eileen McDargh, The Resiliency Group: “In a time of change it is the learners who inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists” (Eric Hoffer). Bill Jensen, Mr. Simplicity: “What we leave behind is not as important as how we lived” (Captain Jean Luc Picard, Star Trek). Sherryanne Meyer, ASUG: “Monty: Why did you say that I was a loser? Simon Wilder: Winners forget they are in a race, they just love to run. You try too hard”. (With Honors, 1994 film). Join us for Radical Resiliency: Start Your Engines, People!
